From Fedora Project Wiki

Gerald B. Cox

I started experimenting with Linux in 1999; using various distributions. I totally migrated off the Windows platform with Redhat 6.2 back in April, 2000. I switched over to Fedora when the project began in 2003.

I use Fedora because I believe in it's objectives and underlying philosophy:

  • Be built only from free and open source software
  • Be on the leading edge

My participation is my way of giving back to the community.
