A self-described lover of technology, Cecil Watson was born in Belize City, Belize. Shortly after his family immigrated, his parents purchased them a Tandy Color Computer 2. He spent seven and a half years in the United Stated Marine Corps, where he learned about a wide range of topics, from rifles to electronics to Unix. Although he misses his Amiga, he strongly believes in Open Source. Cecil created the KnoppMyth distribution in 2003.
