Distros used in the past

  My preference is Fedora or RedHat :)

Used Fedora 38 I like to create projects in my free time using linux, dockers, network routing.

I have always thought that you will not only learn from a system, learn everything you can and improve...

Opinion for Fedora WS

Last version of Fedora 33 I like it since the Beta I find that it has given me fewer errors since the installation. I find it very stable. I only had to report 4 problems that were generated as the applications were updated.

The Fedora Project and Red Hat merged on September 22, 2003 (the dates have come from History of Linux at Red Hat). Version to the latest version of Fedora 19 and ** Fedora

Fedora 36 Excellent work: The distro loads fast, I'm not complaining, it hasn't given me any problems when installing and using it as in other versions. Unfortunately Wayland, still needs more compatibility with NVidia but I understand that the problem is NVIDIA drivers at the moment so to continue in x11

'How Linux changed my life' The continuous change in Linux improves my life and keeps me trying and learning new applications all the time. It fascinates me to see how the system has matured in this time and I think that we had to be almost engineers at the beginning to make my PC run to its current simple it is missing but we are on the right track.
