About the Author
Alessandro installed Linux 0.99.14 soon after getting his degree as electronic engineer. He then received a Ph.D in computer science at the University of Pavia despite his aversion toward modern technology. Alas, he still enjoys digging in technology and discovering the intelligence of people who created it: that's why he now works in his apartment with three PCs, an Alpha, a SPARC, and an Apple2 -- the last without Linux. But you might find him roaming around in the north of Italy on his bike, which doesn't carry an electronic cyclometer.
