The Electronics For You has influenced generations of Indians who wanted to play with and use Electronics. Linux for You is all set to repeat this experience with Linux!!!

Wrong time for Rahul

Hi Guys,

This event fails to rope in the best speakers. The LinuxForYou team should have instead backed something like the Linux Bangalore 2003, which did not have a media partner. Also, the statement that New Delhi and other surrounding cities by Rahul is completely baseless.

The Software Developer pass is priced at an exhorbitant Rs.10000, per developer for 3 days, which is not possible for a small time developer.

I am not surprised that the biggest bigwigs in the world of GNU/Linux, namely Novell,HP and IBM are showing leukewarm response to it.

More than the ``Freedom`` factor provided by GNU/Linux, this show is going to be more focussed on the ``Price`` factor of it. Such a show can never help the community as it fails to highlight the very basis of it. Iam pretty sure Rahul Chopra didn't mention anything like GNU in in Linux ... or Free Software in his Open Source. This is merely a corporate gimmickry as GNU/Linux has become an interesting money making proposition lately. No wonder Rahul Chopra denied to name his mag GNU/Linux For You despite repeated requests from the community including RMS Himself.
