About me

I am Prabin Kumar Datta, a Fresh B.Tech Graduate in IT from Govt. College Of Engg. And Ceramic Tech, Belaghata. Currently, I am staying at Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

I am a using fedora from the version fedora 5. I started Linux as a OS using fedora 5 only. Then I switch to other Linux providers like Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Work Bench Ubuntu, Boss, Red Hat,...

I love fedora more then any other OS since :-

  • Secure than windows
  • Help me learn many things
  • Licensing freedom
  • Access Control
  • Multilayered run levels:work from either the command line or the GUI
  • Multiuser mode
  • Blue my favourite colour. :)

After that I have followed each and every version of Fedora, I saw the constant urge to improve and sticking to some basics, that's why I am still with Fedora. And I plan to continue...

My Interest On Fedora Project

  • I like to see fedora as bugs and errors free Operating System.
  • One for All users- make fedora a user friendly so that each and every user can use this OS without
    facing any problem.
  • Easy availability- users can easily get fedora OS and the required information.
  • Spread the word fedora among the non-Computer Engineers.
  • Encourage people to contribute for Fedora Projects.
  • And the most important create a friendly relation with other fedora developers and users, at the
    same time encourage others also to do the same
