About The Simplicity Linux Team
We like to think that we’re somewhat a unique team. Everyone has a vital role to play.
David Purse – Lead Developer
I started out using Ubuntu on a USB key, then moved onto Puppy Linux and I’ve kind of been with it ever since. I flirted with Linux Mint but eventually went back to Puppy, and since 2009 I’ve been working on Simplicity Linux. I run it on my laptop, on my netbook, and I’m working on a version for the Raspberry Pi. I use whichever version I am working on at the present time as my desktop version, always booting from USB and storing files on the laptop hard disk.
Ale Quiroz – Art and Marketing
Ale is my wife and worked in marketing in her native Honduras. She helps us with our marketing, and she designs the logos for our merchandise and approves the layouts of the UI when it comes to Subdivision. In the past she has taken business cards for Simplicity Linux to events and placed them in prominent locations, and has explained to people in Honduras why they should be using Simplicity Linux.
Mike Jenner – UI Design
Mike is our most unique member of the team. He doesn’t own a computer, he doesn’t have the internet and uses an old Nokia mobile phone. But that makes the best for helping us design the Simplicity UI. Because it’s aimed at being easy to understand, so every release cycle, we put a netbook with Simplicity in front of him, and if he gets it, so should anyone!
