Revision as of 16:23, 1 June 2009 by Echerif (talk | contribs)



I am Omar CHERIF. I am currently manager at eCHERIF a software development company based in Tunisia. I have started using GNU/Linux as since Fedora 6 (Zod) and has been a long time user of Fedora GNU/Linux Distribution. Throughout the time I had the opportunity to try out many distributions such as CentOS, OpenSuSE, Debian and more recently Ubuntu. I am really a fan of RPM distribution mainly Fedora. And I have also started bloging and advocating about Free and Open Source Software as well as Open Content. I have also been involved in Web development for more than 5 years. I am 27 years old (and counting...)

Fedora Ambassador

Though i have been promoting fedora at work, my entourage, colleges and schools ( I have presented/ demonstrated fedora in some Free software events). I have joined Fedora Ambassador later and hope this will make my Fedora Advocacy campaign more strong.
