People very often confuse between these three types of software and often use interchangeably. In some context this interchangeable usage might indeed be correct but there are very distinct differences between these classes of software. Our requestcd service only supports Free Software and Open Source Software and we frequently get requests for Freeware which we politely refuse citing the difference between Free Software and Freeware.

Similar to the StumbleThis module that we had created earlier we have created another bookmarking module for Drupal - SlashdotIt module. Unlike the other social bookmarking sites Slashdot is very selective in terms of the articles that get approved from the submission queue also known as the Slashdot firehose. Use this module on your site only if you are sure that you have slashdot worthy content.

We have volunteered to take up the maintenance of a very useful Drupal module - Search404. As of today we are the official maintainers of this very useful Drupal module. We know that this is going to be a challenge for us, being a young company and with a young team.

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
We have added a few new modules to our site recently. Two of these are the StumbleThis module and the DiggThis module. Drupal already had a DiggThis module available for download but there was no StumbleThis module. StumbleUpon has been a popular source of traffic for zyxware.com and we wanted users to have an option to add any of our pages to their StumbleUpon favorites. So we created our own StumbleUpon module.
In a bid to throttle organized piracy and in retaliation to drop in revenues (or rather, failure in achieving targeted sales) from software sales in Kerala, Microsoft Corporation launched aggressive anti-piracy raids in computer assembling stores in Trivandrum, Kollam and Thrissur districts in Kerala. This we think is a right time for those of you who are worried about using pirated software to shell out large chunks of money to buy licensed software or better SWITCH TO UBUNTU :).

A recent review in Business-World has rated the low bandwidth availability in India as an important factor that could possibly slow down the IT growth rate in India. Some of the aspects discussed included the low penetration of broadband among the populace and the low bandwidth available for the network infrastructure. As a private company there is very little that we can do to mitigate this problem. However we have come up with a novel approach to share our bandwidth with those people who does not have access to high bandwidths.
We are happy to extend phone-based support for all Ubuntu users in Kerala. We have been providing at-site support for Ubuntu Users in Trivandrum for the last one year and we would like to offer this service to all existing Ubuntu users and prospective Ubuntu users in Kerala.
