I'm very interested in Web Applications. And the Open Source Communities really inspire me.

Linux I had used

I'm just novice in Linux field. In our country, lacking of IP protection, we can buy pirated cd installers of Microsoft OS. So people here have very low awareness on Linux and open source software. But what if the government issue some strict IP protection laws? So I start to think about Linux and Open Source things. As we are in Least Developed Country, we can't effort Microsoft's very expensive license fees. So Linux is the best for us, I think.

Had used the following Linux Distribution:-

  1. Ubuntu 8.10
  2. Fedora 9 (Sulphur)
  3. Fedora 10 (Cambridge)

My Contribution

Currently, there's no one except me as an ambassador in Myanmar. And I don't have much fund for any event. That why I'm just promoting with words of mouth. I'm trying to held a seminar relating with Fedora Linux.

If anybody located in Myanmar need help for Fedora, just ring my phone. I will help you as much as I can. If you guys have problem downloading Fedora ISO, I already have both GNOME and KDE ISO for Fedora 10. Contact me and you can get these from me.
