Hello,

I just came accross a dilemna while writing a motivation letter with the word involved... Should I use:


In addition, I have been using a Linux user since 1996 and have been involved in the MythTV Open Source project since 2004, which allowed me to gain a good knowledge of Linux and the Open Source technology.
Or


In addition, I have been using a Linux user since 1996 and have been involved with the MythTV Open Source project since 2004, which allowed me to gain a good knowledge of Linux and the Open Source technology.
Which one is the most appropriate in your opinion? btw, is this entire sentence grammatically correct?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Ludo

If you are a participant in the Myth TV Open Source project, I would recommend 'involved in.'

A possible sentence revision--

In addition, I have been a Linux user since 1996 and have been involved in the MythTV Open Source project since 2004, which has enhanced my knowledge of Linux and the Open Source technology.

(I'm assuming it is your involvement [in/with] the Open Source project that has enhanced/increased your knowledge of the technology.)
