What am I doing now

Apart from advocating the usage of Open Source in APIIT, I am semi-actively involved with FOSS SIG as well. My field of study allows me to explore and discover more uses of current distros and operating systems not limited to Fedora itself. Some other OS used are: SLAX, Ubuntu, Freebsd, Windows (NT,2000,XP and Vista).

One of my personal goals is to eliminate the business dependency on proprietary software to bring down operating costs for the business as well as to minimize maintenance and downtime to the network. Currently studying at APIIT-UCTI majoring in Network Computing, 2nd Year 3rd Semester.
