About me

I am Susmit, staying at Kolkata, India.

Currently, I am a member of the Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee, which is a globally elected body. Moreover, I work as a mentor for the APAC region and also lead the Fedora Freemedia Program which is an effort to globally deliver Free Fedora Media. But my area of interest is Fedora Infrastructure and to which I need to commit more time.

I don't remember exactly when I started using GNU/Linux. It was most probably RedHat 7. But I remember those days when no graphical partitioning tool was available. Installing was not this much easy ... and I liked the adventure (It really was!!!). That was how it all started.

After that I have followed every release and also followed a few other distro. But in Fedora, I saw the constant urge to improve and sticking to some basics, that's why I am still with Fedora. And I plan to continue.

But Fedora or not, I always dream of a free world, where people can freely think, express and act.

Let's take small steps together towards that freedom.

Promote Free Software. Promote GNU/Linux.
