How did I come to be a Lunar Linux User? Easy. I shared an office with Sofar for 18 months and was exposed to his enthusiasm for Lunar Linux.
Plus the fact that I've reached the age where playing squash four times a week wreaks havoc with the knees, so I decided to install Lunar at home and work on some programming projects instead.
And the nickname? That's easy as well. To paraphrase Sting, I'm an Englishman living in the Netherlands.
