Request your copy of CD/DVD of Free software

Primary tabs

January 07, 2008 - 02:06

We are happy to announce the beta launch of our new public service. You can now request us for any software that is freely available on the internet and which you cannot download on your own because of your bandwidth or time limitations. We will download the software, write the CD/DVD and mail the software to you. As simple as that. The mission of this project is simple - to promote Open Source software among those who have limited internet connectivity. Request your copy of your Favorite Free Software Now

Once you request the software through the site, our team will review the software and ensure that the software licenses are compatible with the OSI licenses (http://opensource.org/licenses/alphabetical). After verification we will download the software, write the software CDs or DVDs and send it to you by Registered VPP of Department of Posts.This service is currently available only within India.

We are doing this as a service for the Open Source community and we are not planning to make any profit from the sales. We would, however, like to recover our costs so that we can extend this service the open source community at large. We are not charging for the software but we will be charging for the media and the shipping and handling expenses. Under the VPP postage scheme we will be charging Rs.50 for the first CD, Rs. 60 for the first DVD, and Rs.15 for every additional CD and Rs.25 for every additional DVD. If the cost of the total request goes above Rs. 200 you will have to make a payment for the amount into our ICICI account 038905001939 (Trivandrum, Kowdiar Branch) before we actually ship you the CDs and DVDs

Please use the comments form below to send us your feedback and suggestions

Post your comments / questions

Suggestions:

Replace all references to 'floss', 'foss', 'open source' from your website and webpages. Allow only the term 'Free software' a la GNU. Also, do your good work ONLY for software that satisfies GNU's stringent and 'virginity conscious' licences.

How do you spell the noun 'licence' in your writings? (To the cursory observers or 'pragmatic' 'thinkers', this may sound like trivial, idle nitpicking. Experience will show that it is not. Remember Gandhiji.)

moral: Do not compromise principles even BEFORE you do any good. Don't compromise even AFTER yo do it. But that longer and harder journey begins right now.

Good luck (and purest, uncompromisingest goals) for your project.

Dear Mukund,

Thank you for your valuable input and suggestions. We have a few people working on the content here and hence the slight variations on spelling (US vs British issues). We try to stick to US versions as far as possible. But, yes, we will be more careful in the future.

Our definition of FLOSS, FOSS and Open Source is the same as the purest definition by GNU. However we believe that all the other variants subscribe to the same philosophy to varying degrees. Our vision is to promote the concept of open source as a viable alternative to closed source solutions. This would mean that sometimes we have to promote non GPLed software too. Some of the non-GPLed software are very popular and most of them embrace the philosophy behind GPL wholeheartedly. But some the non-GNU licenses allow some parasitic elements to thrive on such licensed software. I am referring to licenses like BSD licenses that does not require the user to distribute source code with their modifications.

In our opinion, to not promote these variants of Open Source Licenses would be akin to shooting oneself in the foot to cure an itch in the foot. Thus, even though we understand and realize the superiority of GPL over non-GPL variants, we have taken a stand to promote Open Source in general. Weeding out can happen later when the Open Source camp has built itself up into an empire.

Hi ZYXWARE team

First of all HATS OFF to u guys for providing such a useful and awesome service . You all are doing a great Job by promoting FSF .

Secondly , i have placed an order for 3 DVD's just 2 days back . Now when i checked the status of my request , it showing "WAITING FOR THE ADMIN APPROVAL"

Is i have requested something wrong ?
I have placed the order for OpenSUSE 11.1 , Ubuntu 9.x alpha , Mandrive Free Linux 2009 DVD's .

I noticed that these latest versions are not in your List .
Plz reply me back . Thing is that i want these DVD's urgently . Even if u want , i can compromise on the versions of these SOFTWARES . I can take the version , which u already have in the stock .

WAITING FOR YOUR KIND REPLY :)

Hi,
Sorry about the delay caused in approval of your request. We will process your request soon. In the order list, you have included an alpha version of Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope. We have copies of only the latest stable versions of distros. In the case of Ubuntu, the latest stable release is Ubuntu 8.10.
The other two distros you have ordered is available. We will be sending Ubuntu 8.10 CD, Mandriva 2009 DVD and OpenSUSE 11.1. Is that fine for you ?
Thank you
Manuel Jose
Team Zyxware

Hey that would be great ... !!!

But if possible send me the Ubuntu 8.10 DVD version ( i read 'Ubuntu CD' in your post, thats why).
But thats not a necessary condition .
It would be more helpful ...

Sir, I have requested CDs few days ago.I think my request is confirmed because I got a call from your company confirming my order.
Well the problem is that I am shifting my home.Will I receive the CDs on or before "Monday May 18". Because this is the last day I am staying here( the address I have given while requesting CDs ).

Sorry about this late reply. Did you got the CD's now, or you are already shifted? If latter is the case, all you need to do is simply order the CD's once again with your new address. Any queries regarding our RequestCD Service is welcome.

Do you guys offer free Revit software CD/DVD.I am in desperate need of one.Please help

The RequestCD program is primarily to promote Free and Open Source Software. Also there would be licensing issues if we try to distribute other software even if they are Free to download. So no we don't have Revit in our system.
