About Me

Hi! I have been using GNU Linux since 2011. My first distro was SlackWare and i had to do a lot of reading in order to install it and use it. After that i moved to several other distros like ubuntu, arch and also Debian, a distro that i like much but i prefer not to install it on a desktop system. Arch is great too. Finally, i've ended up in fedora and i don't want to look elsewhere in the future. The reasons are the following:

  • Best Gnome experience (my favorite GUI).
  • It includes the latest software packages.
  • Early adoption of new technologies.
  • It's Very very stable although the two above reasons.
  • The project encourages contribution.
  • It feels to me as a solid distro.
  • It's the only distro with which i've managed to scan documents with my canon-mx475 printer.

Educational Background
