Xavier

My name is Xavier and I am a linux enthusiast here in Laredo, TX. I use Fedora on my only computer. I have been using Fedora Linux since Fedora 7 and have never looked back or at other distros.

I am a Linux enthusiast (going on 13 years now) who uses Fedora Linux. I favor Fedora Linux because of its robust cutting-edge technology and its reliability. My plans include spreading the power of Fedora Linux here in Laredo, TX. Most people here in Laredo, TX use Windows (Winblows) on their computers. Lots of people here in Laredo, TX (275,000 pop. est.) town advise me that they are sick and tired of Windows problems. So I have a naturally favourable position to spread and make people aware of the GNU/Linux OS and more specifically, Fedora Linux. I have about 3 people so far who have nothing else but Fedora installed in their PC's. We collaborate when we can about things you can do in Fedora. My short-term goal/idea is to create a LUG in this town to have monthly meetings regarding Fedora Linux and Linux in general and speak at certain events in town. My audience can range from kids to teenagers to college students to working adults to elderly. My long-term goal is to start-up a PC services business in this town. I also eventually want to create a Fedora group here in Laredo that can collaborate with other Fedora groups in the world. In this town, I am basically the person that knows Fedora the most, so my colleagues come to me for advice. I would like to represent Laredo in the Fedora Linux planet!!

I also am a big fan of goggle so I created a fedora Linux LUG on google. The link is here: http://groups.google.com/group/xm4nfedoralinux-lug I also use the new google wave, so IMing and emailing should be more easier for me to communicate.
