About me

I am a student of Kalyani Government Engineering College pursuing B-Tech in Information Technology. Computers is my passion and Linux is something I can't resist.
I started out using Linux when I was in 1st year of my engineering but faced a lot of difficulties due to lack of info, knowledge and resources. I got my 1st Linux distribution after two (2) months of searching for it. Internet connection was a problem then and there was no-one to guide.

My first aim while using Linux was to do everything in it which I normally did in Windows.
Now, I have no windows installed in my system and I strongly believe in FOSS.
I would also like to pursue a carrier in FOSS.
