Project: OpenOffice.org
Interesting Links If you have not taken a test drive of Office Suite from OpenOffice.org, I would strongly recommend doing it. Great and cool features and fully compatable with Microsoft Office. Works on Linux, Windows and other UNIX/OS platforms. It is also available for Hindi, Tamil and plans for other Indian languages. It is opensource and costs zero $$$ or rupees. Spread the word around, share the software with your friends and copy it as many times as possible. So now you don't have to fork big money or illegally pirate or copy MS Office Suite:-).

OpenSource Software CD's in India, almost Free
India "btbytes.com puts the latest and greatest OpenSource softwares in your reach"
Came across this interesting site and valuble service being provided by a fellow desi out in Banglore, India. For all those folks in India, who want to try and use OpenSource Software[read: Free:-)], this service reduces the huge barrier of Net downloads[read: poor internet speeds].
If you are aware of more services like this in India, send a note. Thanks

Gita on a rice grain!
SPAM Anonymous writes "While taking a nap during a particularly dry session at a scientific conference, a desi MIT professor of brain and cognitive sciences, dreamt that he was writing the entire Bhagavad Gita on a grain of rice. When he awoke, he did a back-of-the-envelope calculation of the surface area of a grain of rice and the smallest typeface in microphotolithography one might use for 100 pages of Sanskrit. It seemed to him that it might actually work. Read the rest of the story here "

Live Linux on a CD!
GNU 1) KNOPPIX is a bootable CD with a collection of GNU/Linux software, automatic hardware detection, and support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB devices and other peripherals. KNOPPIX can be used as a Linux demo, educational CD, rescue system, or adapted and used as a platform for commercial software product demos. It is not necessary to install anything on a hard disk. Due to on-the-fly decompression, the CD can have up to 2 GB of executable software installed on it. Also check out this location. "Zero to GNU/Linux in Five minutes". Enjoy and spread the word around!

2) Morphix is a modular distribution, with live-cd support and without any configuration (you burn the CD, you put it in your CD-Rom drive, you boot and it works... out of the box).

3) While we are on the subject of Linux running out of a CD, Suse has Live Eval, a must desktop!

Indian ISPs, what Next?
India This news article is a little old, but still interesting to read that Indian ISPs are coming up with such creative(duh!) ideas. I wonder, does it hurt when they think so hard?:-).

To start, How about some better service and prices for the connectivity(huh!) they already provide?
