Hi there! I'm Kiran Kumar, founder of FOSSLinux.com. I'm an avid Linux lover and enjoy hands-on with new promising distros. Currently, I'm using Ubuntu as a daily driver and run several other distros such as Fedora, Solus, Manjaro, 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. I 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 Linux love!. If you find a time, drop me an email or feedback from the 'Contact' page. Or simply leave a comment below if you found this article useful. Have a good day!

  1. Hi Kiran, thanks, I really appreciate your tutorials. You could teach Fedora a thing or two since their installation instructions are WRONG! I just want to point out to you that your link to their website does not point to any iso files, rather to their buggy “Media Writer” file. Contrary to their tutorial there is no way to create a 32 bit USB drive from a 64 bit system using this media writer. Your method saved the day. But you may want to steer your readers to the torrent sites where you can download the required iso image directly:

    Thanks again, cheers!
