Personal information

Description

In the 80's I knew nothing about computers.
In the early 90's I was forced at work to type data into a computerized system. In the late 90's I bought a second hand personal computer trying to understand how it worked.
I assembled a computer in 2007.
I was introduced to Barry Kauler's Puppy Operating Systems in 2008 and definitely dropped Windows and hard disk drives in 2010.
I have been using liveCD and LiveUSB Kauler's distributions in my self assembled computer (Pentium 4 - Asus P5G41T-M LX3 motherboard - 2GB RAM DDR3 - optical disc drive)since then.
Since March 2018 I began alternating between Puppy, Belenos and then Flidas live operating systems.
I don't use hard disc drives since I dropped Windows and boot from optical disc drives or USB flash drives and keep my stuff in USB flash drives.
I have no formal studies in IT and most of my little knowledge has been extracted from browsing the Internet.
I contributed with a couple of translations of the FSF's web site and became a FSF Student Associate Member on April 2011
I would like to be a successful promoter of free software and contribute in the development of free operating systems but I feel that I don't know enough about these subjects and I feel confused about the steps I should take to achieve the necessary knowledge to reach my goals.
