Interest:

I am a two-term member of the community council.

I love hacking around on my two N800s and my loaned N900. On my N800, I have a multiple-boot setup with various flavours of the Tablet OS (and Debian) running in different partitions on my my SD card.

My most exciting project recently has been getting Debian applications (like Gimp, AbiWord, OpenOffice, Iceweasel, etc) running seamlessly on Maemo devices using a chroot, a nested X-server (Xephyr) and a light window manager (LXDE).

Lately, my packages have been consistently in the top 10 "hot" downloads from maemo.org, often even in the top five.
