Harmen de Ruiter

Harmen P. (Murf) de Ruiter is chairman and founder of Hostingvereniging Soleus. Next to his efforts building and expanding the community he he likes to be involved with other communities (NLLGG, WikiMedia) and events like HAR, ETH-0, etc.

His experience with Linux goes back to 1998 with a stack of floppy disks containing a very early Slackware installation. Once installed on his very own 486 DX4 100 his love for Linux and OSS was born.

Though he still likes working and playing with Linux and OSS, he considders himself a software agnostic, aiming at simply solving the problem with the right tools, not forcefully trying to use OSS as the one and only solution for every single problem.
