With a view to promote the status of Kerala as an IT Hub, Kerala State IT mission organized yet another IT Show. The theme of Kerala IT.Com 2008 was ‘Kerala – The IT Destination Hub – Cutting edge and Viable solutions through use of IT’. This time the show was hosted at Technopark. One major change in this years show was a stall offerred by the IT Mission for the promotion of free software community in the state and for the promotion of free software in Industry.

The Free Software Stall was manned by volunteers from GNU/Linux Users Group Trivandrum and staff from SPACE-KERALA. Being a very active member of the GNU/Linux Users Group Trivandrum we had sent our teams to man the stall for two days. There were primarily three activities at the stall - one was a demonstration of the possibilities of Malayalam Computing using free software. The other was interaction with the visitors and clarification of doubts and questions regarding free software.

The third activity was the explanation of the activities and opportunities with the free software community in Trivandrum. Interested people were also invited to sign up for the GNU/Linux Users Group Trivandrum. Email addresses and phone numbers were collected of the people who showed interest. For those who had only given phone numbers we had made phone calls subsequently to collect email addresses for sending them invites.

It was really a productive IT show for the free software community as it gave us the opportunity to take the possibilities of Free Software to the IT professionals and to the corporate world in Trivandrum. If you are interested to know more about the GNU/Linux Users Group activities in Trivandrum you can check out the google groups - http://groups.google.com/group/ilug-tvm and the website www.ilug-tvm.org

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.

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. webmaster access_time 25 Oct 2020 - 21:29 In reply to free software cd's/dvd's by mukund joglekar (not verified) 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.
