About me

I am Susmit, staying at Kolkata, India and currently doing my masters in Computer Science.

Currently, I am a member of the Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee, which is a globally elected committee. Moreover, I work as a mentor for the APAC region and also lead the Fedora Freemedia Program which is an effort to deliver Free Fedora Media globally.

I don't remember exactly when I started using GNU/Linux. It was most probably RedHat 7. But I remember those days when no graphical partitioning tool was available. Installing was not this much easy ... and I liked the adventure (It really was!!!). That was how it all started.

After that I have followed every RedHat release ... also followed a few other distro. But in Fedora, I saw the constant urge to improve and stick to some basics ... thats why I am still with Fedora. And I plan to continue.

But Fedora or not, I a l w a y s dream of a free world, where people can freely think, express and act.

Let's take small steps together towards that freedom.

Promote Free Software. Promote GNU/Linux.
