Like many ideas, Amahi grew from the urge to "scratch an itch." Carlos had the vision for easy to use home servers early on. He is the Founder and Chief Instigator at Amahi. Carlos has an extended career in the software and semiconductor industries, having worked at Bell Labs Research, Transmeta and NVIDIA. Linux has been a passion of his since the early days. Carlos is based in Silicon Valley, was an early contributor to the Linux kernel and was one of the very first ever to boot the x86_64 kernel (even before silicon chips were available).
