I'm Frederico Lima from Belo Horizonte (city of Sepultura band) state of Minas Gerais but now I'm living in Brasília capital of Brazil.

I started using Linux back in 1999 with some distros that I do not remember anymore

but back in 2000 when I bought an brazilian computer magazine called "PC Master" and the Suse 6.3 distro came with it, I started to like it even more.

This is my CD of Suse 6.3 that came with the magazine

Since then, I've been using Linux, mostly Slackware and Debian.

I always wanted to contribute with the open-source community,

So around 2005 I started packaging and translating a few things into Slackware. Just small contributions.

Some years ago I've started using Fedora on my personal laptop and desktop, and at my workstation on my job. And deploying on RHEL servers the apps that I develop.

But in 2016 I felt it was time to really contribute, and as I liked the Fedora Project proposal, I joined that community.

Feel free to contact me to join any team at Fedora Project.

Thank you.

Jon "Maddog" Hall and me
