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
