Revision as of 16:54, 1 June 2009 by Echerif (talk | contribs)



I am Omar CHERIF. I work at eCHERIF a software development company based in Tunisia. 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...)
