Hi there! I’m Kiran Kumar, founder of FOSSLinux.com. I’m an avid Linux lover, and enjoys hands-on with new promising distros. Currently, I’m using Linux Mint as a daily driver and run several other distros such as Fedora, Solus, Ubuntu, Debian, and some new ones on my test PC and virtual machines. I have a day job as an Engineer, and this website is one of my favorite past time activities especially during Winter ;). When I’m not writing for FOSSLinux, I’m seen biking and hiking on scenic trails. Hope you enjoy using this website as much as I do writing for it. Feedback from readers is something that inspires me to do more, and spread my love for Linux. If you find time, drop me an email or feedback from ‘Contact’ page.
