About me

My first contact with GNU/Linux was when I was taking an IT essentials certification(2002). I must admit that it didn't catch me the first time that I saw it.

Later on when I was working in IT support I had a case in which I was advised to try Linux to check if I that helped me to solve the issue... It did actually, after that I wanted to learn more about it.

I started with Ubuntu(Gutsy Gibbon)while I was taking some Linux certifications (basics, shell, servers) I wanted to try different Linux distributions until I reach Archlinux(KDE DE) which was my main distro for a long time and thanks to it I learned how the system works.

I moved on to Fedora because I needed a distribution in which I can focus on my work without spending much time configuring the system, up to date and stable packages and also a community to be part of.
