About me

My name is Andrew, I am a retired Navy Enlisted Technician that holds a CCNA and have many years of experience with networks and various operating systems. I was exposed to Fedora by another retired service member and have loved it ever since. In those earlier days I started with Fedora Core 6 on an old laptop along side with Red Hat. I now perfer to use Fedora 18 over the windows products. I find that the more I use Fedora the more I enjoy the features and ease of configuration of various platforms. I now have 8 of the 15 machines running Fedora (13, 14, 16, 17, and now 18).

Although I am an entry level user here with the project, I am very excited to help out in any way I can. Linux systems are not unfamiliar to me while in the military, I was responsible for maintaining HP UX (unix based systems and Servers) servers and nodes. I find Fedora to be the most stable platform available over any other versions of Linux (i.e ubuntu, knoppix etc...)

I would recommend Fedora to anyone who is tired of the same ole grind of windows to a new and refreshing way of computing. I have already convinced many of my friends to switch over to a virtually virus free environment and the benefit of a stable operating system.

Recently I took on the responsibility of becoming on of the FEDORA Ambassadors promoting the best product and service available. This is a major step in achiving personal and professional goals. Recent event that I participated in was at the Southeast Linux Fest (SELF) in Charolette NC. What a Blast. We by far had the most representatives present than any other Table. I believe that our sucess stems from the Ambassadors Group within FEDORA and the product we represent. http://www.southeastlinuxfest.org/

I also just ran the booth at the Texas Linux Festival in San Antonio. http://www.texaslinuxfest.org
