I'm passionated in linux and opensource for many years. Back in the late 1990's I started running debian on my first server and gave suse a shot for my old desktop computer.

At that time I recognized the big benefits of opensource, switched over to gentoo and digged into kernel internals. Which in fact took me a lot of time for maintenance and debugging but lead to the fact that I learned so much about software packaging/lifecycle and debugging system internals.

Since I am hired as an embedded software developer I profit a lot from my taken experience which I gathered within different opensource communities. And that's why I want to share some snippets of my knowledge and push back as much code as possible.
