Greetings,

My name is Andrew, I am a retired Navy Enlisted Technician that holds a CCNA and has many years of experience with networks and various operating systems. I was exposed to Fedora by another retired service member and have loved it ever since. In those earlier days I started with Fedora Core 6 on an old laptop along side with Red Hat. I now perfer to use Fedora 14 over the windows products. I find that the more I use Fedora the more I enjoy the features and ease of configuration of various platforms. I now have 3 of the 15 machines running Fedora (13, 14, 15, and now 16).

Although I am an entry level user here with the project, I am very excited to help out in any way I can. Linux systems are not unfamiliar to me while in the military, I was responsible for maintaining HP UX (unix based systems and Servers) servers and nodes. I find Fedora to be the most stable platform available over any other versions of Linux (i.e ubuntu, knoppix etc...)

I would recommend Fedora to anyone who is tired of the same ole grind of windows to a new and refreshing way of computing. I have already convinced many of my friends to switch over to a virtually virus free environment and the benefit of a stable operating system.

I have distributed over 50 Cd/Dvd's around the United States and Canada. I look forward to talking with other members of the project and future Fedora users.

Cheers......
