Nice to know that there are people around who inspite of working on
proprietary softwares due to job requirements, continue to be involved
n open source activities. Radha, a question out of curiosity, do you
use Linux as your primary desktop?

Yes I second that as well. If you have any contacts with any
school/college, we would love to conduct a session there on basic FOSS
concept. As for write-ups, most of us have already blogged about it.
We are also in the process of populating our wiki page, which we would
like to be a place for all infromation.

At the moment, we are looking at expanding the membership of our org.
We would love if you could in any way help in popularising this among
your friends who are also FOSS enthusiasts.
