== Omar CHERIF == File:Https://fedoraproject.org/w/uploads/9/9c/Artwork MarketingCollateral userbar fedora ambassador.png I am Omar CHERIF. Professionally I'm a Web Developer and GNU/Linux sysadmin for eCHERIF a software development company based in Tunisia (supporting mostly Fedora and CentOS in the usual heterogeneous environment). I have started using GNU/Linux as I got Fedora 6(Zod) and has been a long time user of Fedora GNU/Linux Distribution. Throughout the time I had the opportunity to try out many distributions such as CentOS, SuSE, Debian, Yellowdog and more recently Ubuntu but I am still a fan of RPM distribution mainly Fedora. I have also started bloging and advocating about Free and Open Source Software as well as Open Content. I have also been involved in Web development for more than 5 years. I am 27 years old (and counting...)
