Where I get started

I have started using a linux distro from my highshool time. There we have introduced to a linux distro called IT@School. This was a program initiated by government of kerala in association with FSF (Free Software Foundation). Even though we use a linux os we didn't care or know what exactly Linux is !. In higher secondary school time I again became a Windows user :(. Things change from my first year at college. I have reading a lot of articles on linux every where. But still I can't able to find a Linux distro in my college. So i decided to change my Operating Syatem for a while. From there I never changed to windows. Now I have a few friends who installed fedora on their laptop. I started with Ubuntu 10.04( At that time ubuntu don't do stupid things).After 2 year getting intermediate user in Linux I decided to Change to Fedora. Prof:Prabhat Ranjan who is the Executive Director of TIFAC ( technology Information forecasting and Assessment Council), New Delhi. Introduce me to fedora18. He was using fedora.That was my internship period in TIFAC, New Delhi. There I used to develop my entire project on fedora. Currently I am using fedora 21 on my samsung i386 laptop.
