From Fedora Project Wiki

Denis Arnaud

I first installed RedHat (version 5, in 1998) with Oracle 8, when that latter was delivered on Linux for the first time... on a small Pentium-based computer with 600MB of disk and 64MB of RAM, hence proving to my hierarchy that Linux was ready for professional use. I started to be involved in the Fedora building process by translating documents and package descriptions, and have become a packager in 2009.
