I’ve been waiting for a long time to attend this expo, but due to some constraints I couldn’t make out this time. Its on 8th, 9th and 10th of this month. Linux Asia is Indias largest Open Source Conference and Expo. We can find hot shots of Open Source World. There are number of workshops by leading Tech guyz in the Open World. India is going to be the major player in this open source race in near future. Indias leading Linux magazine LFY is the major Organizers of this event. Mark Shuttleworth is on the top of the list. There are going to be amazing workshops from IBM, Redhat, Novell and Ubuntu. India was passive player all these days, even ppl used to call India as leeches than contributors but It ain’t right now. There are so many Open Projects of Indian origin now. People are getting to know more about the beauty of Linux. I believe only we people (I mean we engineers) should take some initiative in bringing out some innovative ideas and start over. GNU is providing platform for such developers at http://savannah.gnu.org/. We can call savannah as free alternative for sourceforge.com. Even they review your projects and promote them to official GNU project after the thorough scrutinize by experts and finally by the approval of RMS. The roots are to be laid from the basic education system. People are spending huge amounts in M$ Windows for educational purpose and in government organizations. Students should be encouraged to use Linux for personal purpose and do some open projects. Future is Open!
