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 24 May 2019 - 01:43 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.

Are you looking for an intellectually stimulating and challenging MCA project to wrap up your course? Are you looking for building something that people are going to use in real life instead of ending up in an old shelf in your college? If so you you have come to the right place. We are inviting smart and capable MCA students for some of our upcoming Free Software community projects. All these projects are going to be real world projects targeting real users and the completed work will be contributed to the community. Before you can rush in, you have to prove that you are capable enough to make it worthwhile for us to spend time with you. Send your resume to (mca-projects at zyxware dot com) us with a covering letter not less than 1000 words (A4 sheet single-line-spacing 12px font) explaining why you think that we should invest our time in you. The best way to showcase your technical abilities is to point us to some code that you have written previously. A URL, or a tarball attached to your mail would be sufficient. Also send us a 2 page(same specs as above) proposal on a Free Software project that you would like to participate/build. If we find the project more interesting and more worthwhile than the ones we have in mind we might take up your project and let you work on it. If you are planning to work on the project as a team then each member of the team has to send a separate resume + covering letter. The project proposal can be a joint proposal for your project. When you are applying as a team, attach all your resumes, covering letters and the project proposal with one single email to make it easier for us to sort through the mails. If we think that you might fit the bill you will get a call/mail from us within 2 weeks of you sending your application. We will not be able to answer/reply to rejected enquiries. If you don't get a call/mail from us within 2 weeks, you can safely assume that your application was rejected. You will have to be present physically at our office for the full course of the project. If you are from outside Trivandrum, we will help you in finding/arranging temporary accommodation. We will not be charging any fees for the project, neither will we be paying you any stipend for the project. During the project you will get an opportunity to be part of an exciting team of developers here at Zyxware. You will also get a chance to interact with IT professionals from the Free Software community here in Trivandrum. If you are smart enough you will also have a shot at getting a job here at Zyxware. Finally this will give you a chance to do something worthwhile for yourself and for the community through your MCA project.

We are moving from our present location this year. After having spent nearly 3 years at our current office location we have decided to move out. We are planning to split our operations - hardware and software - to two locations. We are looking for office spaces or residential buildings that can be used for commercial purposes. We request all our well wishers in Trivandrum city to let us know of any potential places to move out to within the coming one month or so. You can read more details about the houses/offices we are looking to rent in Trivandrum here News Leave a reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marker *
