Jack Neely

I run the Linux Initiative at NC State University -- the same campus as Red Hat's corperate headquarters. I do a bit of everything from managing/creating the Linux distribution based on Red Hat products, deployment tools, tier 3 support, and all the politics around Open Source on campus. Check out NCSU's [Campus Linux Services] for information about Linux at NCSU.
