We have been running a highly popular Request CD program for the last one year. Through this people across India have been requesting Free and Open Source Software from us and we have been downloading and writing these on to CDs and DVDs and sending to these people. We have only been charging for the cost of the media and the shipping and handling charges from the people because we wanted to use this program to promote Free Software across India. We have prepared the list of software that are currently available from us through RequestCD and are publishing it here

We started zyxware with a vision to play an active role in changing the world around us positively. We are happy to announce the pilot mode launch of our first community initiative - [email protected] Through this project we hope to empower the student community technologically and financially. We hope that this would also give them a wonderful opportunity to learn and try new technologies, interact with other students with similar likes and the best part - get paid for doing this.
