Priyesh Khunteta

Hi Everyone, I am Priyesh Khunteta , i did my Btech in Computer Science from Jaypee University of Information Technology, Solan India . I was introduced to Linux in 2005, my first experience started with live distros, such as Knoppix, Knoppix-STD , incidentally one of my friend's Fedora-Core 4 system was what got me intrigued . My curious nature got best of me and i eventually installed Fedora core 4 but well lets just say due to unforeseen circumstances :P [forgetting root password :P] forced me to situation where i was still using Windows as main OS. But it was With Fedora Core 5 that made me really fall in love with Fedora.. While i was using Fedora Core 6, most of the my friend had moved on to other Linux Distros , especially OpenSuse and Everyone tried persuading me to leave Fedora Core and transfer to OpenSuse but I don't know why, but i was never able to leave Fedora Core... maybe it was due to its [DIY]"do it yourself" thing or what. but Fedora always kept me busy, whether it was editing fstab, looking for a way to to connect to repositories behind proxy, or installing new video drivers for then just introduces intel 915 motherboard. In late 2006 I, along with some of my friends made our university first Linux User Group(known as JLUG). We then held many Seminars, event, meeting, etc. to introduce Linux to our fellow students, as by then Windows was the only operating System used by more than 95% students. We got good response too :) Now we have strength of more than 100 student and also we manage to convince some of our lecturers to use Linus too :)

Now i am passed out from my college but i am still in contact with students of my college, who are now looking after JLUG. We still continue to promote Linux irrespective of distances involved .. I am also hosting two of fedora compiz fusion repository for last 7-8 months. Its always a pleasure for me to help anyone regarding Fedora, so if anyone need help let me know about it :)
