I read that Indian army is adopting Linux. Find article by clicking link below

Only few months ago, president of India,DR. A. P. J. ABDUL KALAM, stressed to use open source for military purposes. No wonder official site of President of india ( ) is running Linux. Check this at Netcraft (

Cheers for the president !

FreeBSD Rocks !!

I finally got FreeBSD successfully installed. Though hardware detection of FreeBSD is not one of the best, I got my soundcard working (Creative Soundblaster Live !) after some kernel tweaking and recompiling it.

The best part of FreeBSD is its ports collection. Almost all the opensource software is available through FreeBSD ports. I got firefox, gaim, k3b,vlc media player,xmms, abiword, anjuta,openoffice through ports collection. It really does take some time to install ports and the software is downloaded and compiled on my machine. However, its really exciting to work on !

Meanwhile, I had my first class of Spring 2005 today. Really waiting for this semester to get over so that I graduate.

I am Back

The captain is back !! After almost two horribly busy months, I am little bit relaxed now. Enjoyed break at my sister's place.

I am venturing with FreeBSD 5.3 today on my computer. Hope everything goes fine and I do not mess up my hard drive again :-)
