About me

My name is Geraldo S. Simião Kutz. I've been using GNU/Linux and Open Source Software since 2004, but only in 2019 became a Fedora user. Since the beginning I falled in love for both the Project and the distro Fedora and now I'm a Fedora contributor, at first on the QA team, and later as a Fedora Advocate too. I'm from Curitiba, a southern Brazilian city, but I have family on Germany and have lived part of my childhood at France too.
My favourite Fedora variation is the KDE-Plasma SPIN which I use in my old acer/intel notebook with great results.
