Agostino Russo

Hi I am Ago,

I am the author and maintainer of Wubi (http://wubi-installer.org) which in turn is based on the Lupin project (https://launchpad.net/lupin) and this original blueprint (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/ubuntu-setup.exe). I am now helping the ubuntu-installer team to make Wubi an official installer.

I like to dedicate my (little) spare time to open source projects. Usually after my kids are in bed. I work as a quant in a financial company, I have a PhD in finance and a major in economics, but I have been programming since I was 11, starting with the fantastic Commodore64. I have been using Linux exclusively since 2000, and Ubuntu since Warty. Before that it was Red Hat, Mandrake, Gentoo, Debian. My preferred programming language is Python (not much of that in Wubi unfortunately).
