Name: Carlos Donizete Froes | Nickname: Coringao | City: Poa | State: Sao Paulo | Country: Brazil

I am analyst of support and implementation of business systems.

I have advanced knowledge in the GNU/Linux distributions from this 2003 (initially with distributions: Conectiva version 9 and 10).

At the end of 2005, was an administrator of the Ubuntu Games website and an official member Ubuntu from 2009 until 2015.

I started working with Debian from the Squeeze version, contributing to the development and knowledge package for Debian GNU/Linux.

I chose Debian as the main GNU/Linux distribution in providing a simple and efficient operating system for users. Thanks also to the Debian community, which had a strong weight in my decision, and is certainly open to suggestions and, of course, contributions.

It is very important to talk about games because this is a critical factor for many people thinking of migrating to GNU/Linux distributions, which are always criticized by those who find it difficult for lay users where they say there are few options for mental exercises or amusements.

As most games are released only for proprietary systems. So the goal is to help with tutorials, illustrations, installation tips, Debian packaging and bring the best games to the system.

Testimonies as Member Ubuntu

{*} Carlos Donizete is a great friend, he also does a great job with Ubuntu Games project. Ubuntu Games Project is responsible by many gamers come to Ubuntu Linux. The IUG (Ubuntu Games Installer) is his newest project and is just the best idea i ever seen. I recommend Carlos Donizete to become an Ubuntu Member! -- LedStyle

{*} Coringao (aka Carlos Donizete) is one of the more hard working members I have ever seen in the Brazilian team. He hasn't done the usual translation and documentation work, but he has created a whole new sub community with Ubuntu Games. His site and work has been complimented by people from all around the world. Also, he has been doing lots of advocating in national FOSS events showing users that they can also have fun on Ubuntu. On the biggest events he should have a booth of his own, as there are dozens of people looking for him at each instant. He is a GREAT asset for the Brazilian community and a very important piece for Ubuntu and FOSS grow in the gamers community. I have to give him my best recommendations possible for a membership. -- MarioMeyer

{*} Coringao did an excellent work with Ubuntu Games. I met him at FISL'08, and support him to become an Ubuntu Member. -- AndreGondim
