Involvement With Linux

Mark Furneaux has been an open source software activist since 2006, when he first discovered Linux. It wasn’t until mid 2007 before he was using Linux as his main OS. He does his best to encourage others to use any kind of free and open source software (FOSS) that they can. He currently uses Ubuntu as his primary Desktop and server OS.

Romaco Canada

In 2008 Mark started Romaco Canada, originally an IT development company aimed at providing services such as web development, computer repair, server setup, custom electronics hardware, and not-for-profit software. The company has expanded into network design, embedded systems, and consultation services.

As an Audiophile

Ever since Mark bought his first CD in 2002, he has always been obsessed with the limits of technology’s ability to accurately reproduce sound. Mark is advocate of vinyl (not for sound reproduction qualities though) and fancies valve amplifiers.

Media

Mark runs a YouTube channel that features teardowns, reviews, and autopsies of electronics and computer hardware, both new and vintage.

He runs a blog for things that are not suited for videos.
