About the Author
After working as a teacher of Mathematics and as Deputy Head of an independent school in London, Roger Whittaker
discovered Linux in 1996 and became increasingly interested (some would say obsessed). When SUSE Linux opened its UK office in 1999, he changed careers and worked as a technical and training consultant until early in 2004. He now works for Novell supporting Linux installations for large customers. He is Newsletter Editor for UKUUG
, the UK's Unix and Open Systems user group.
Justin Davies has been a Linux user since the age of 15. After University, he joined SUSE Linux as a Technical Consultant where he specialized in Linux on non-Intel architecture. He then spent time working with value-added resellers in Europe to define their open source strategy and go-to-market plans around Linux. He is now the founder and CTO of Ninetyten, a social networking consultancy based in London, where he is still providing solutions based on open source software.
