Welcome. We have a few folks from Kolkata on this (ie fedora-india) list
and it would be awesome if you could join forces
> My name is Bigyan Bhar. I live in Kolkata, India.

> Currently I am pursuing a Post Graduation degree at the University of
> Calcutta with Computer Science and Engineering. I completed my B.Sc. in
> Computer Science in 2006.
> My love affair with computers began back in 1997 when I had my first
> course in BASIC programming language in my school. Got my first PC in
> 2001 with Windows 98. In 2002 I saw Linux for the first time at a
> friend's place. I was willing to try it out, but did not have the
> courage to install it myself. Finally I took the plunge with Red Hat 9
> in Aug 2003.
> From then I have been using Linux regularly for the past 5 years or so.
> I installed and used all the Fedora OSs right from Fedora Core 1 to
> Fedora 8. So I have become a Fedora help-out guy amongst my peer group
> who regularly come to me for all their Linux related problems.
> Personally I feel that the most important thing hindering the popularity
> of Fedora is the lack of awareness. Most people around me have wrong
> opinions about Fedora, like the unavailability of drivers, which is now
> a distant history. I am not the MS basher type, and I do agree that
> Windows has revolutionized the PC experience. But Fedora comes with its
> own very unique set of advantages which people should consider while
> choosing their OS. I think that this Ambassador program is a great
> opportunity for Linux lovers like us to do exactly that and spread the
> word around for Fedora.
