PRABIN KUMAR DATTA
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 blog: My Own Blog
Fedora is an RPM-based, general purpose operating system built on top of the Linux kernel, which is developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and sponsored by Red Hat.
The Fedora Project's mission is to lead the advancement of free and open source software and content as a collaborative community.
