Why Fedroa

Simple question but a hard answer! Maybe because after using windows for 7 years having to reinstall it every week or 2, lack of support, and the kind of PC it needs to run it (Hardware), I Was trying to find something more stable and has a good support, That is when i tried Linux, started with simple Desktop Distros like Ubuntu And Debian, But the very first i tried was Fedora core 4, And after a while of using Other Distros i needed something that is faster and performs better as Web servers And Proxy Servers, Tried Many but Fedora Solved Almost All without any efforts from my side searching for what i want, the remaining issues got solved by the nice community that I am a part of now, Now i know i have a stable system, highly configurable, fast And well supported.

Its my turn to pay this community Back.
