Personal Information

Full name: Thang Nguyen Nang

Gender: Male

Date of birth: 28th, June, 1988

Nationality: Vietnam


I knew about GNU/Linux two years ago and Fedora was the fist Operating System that I worked on. I love using GNU/Linux for several reasons. Fist of all, I love "Freedom" and GNU/Linux is a "Free" operating system. Secondly, GNU/Linux has a huge number of distributions, so I can easily choose one of the best distros I like. Finally, GNU/Linux has many advantages, especially in security.

I am currently an active member of Hanoi Linux User Group (HanoiLUG).

Activites within Fedora

It is true that I love Fedora so much than other GNU/Linux Distributions because of Fedora's Core Values.

I organized and participated in Fedora events, including:

  • Distributing Fedora Media (CDs,DVDs) for free to students studying at my school and others
  • Organizing Fedora release events with Mr. Truong Anh Tuan [2] from Fedora 14 to Fedora 16 in Hanoi
  • Helping students and everbody to join the Fedora Project and its Sub-Projects
  • Explaining to everbody about four core values of Fedora usually
  • Organizing Fedora studying classes with Mr. Truong Anh Tuan [3] and others from 2009 to present in Hanoi, Thai Nguyen, etc

Moreover, I also joined Fedora Sub-Projects, including:

  • The Fedora Free Media Program
  • The Fedora Ambassadors Project

Other Activities within FOSS Community

Within Foss Community, I organized a lot of FOSS events at school where I was studying. Moreover, I participated a large number of FOSS events such as:

  • Ubuntu release parties from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 11.10 in Hanoi
  • Software Freedom Day from 2009 up to now
  • GNOME 3 release party in Hanoi
  • FOSS@HUS, FOSS@ICTU in 2011


I love GNU/Linux so much, so I want to be a FOSS Contributor. Actually, I want to be a Contributor to the Fedora Project to represent, promote, expand the Fedora Project and its ideals to the large FOSS Community in my country.


In the furture, I hope that Fedora will be the best OS and there will be more and more people using Fedora in Vietnam. Finally, I want to say "Thank you!" to all of Fedora members and Fedora Community.
