Hi to all,

We brought our two laptops . They provided Lcd Projector. Nearly 1 pm we arranged Lcd and laptop.

Above 80 (eighty) Students were came to there lab. They are first and second year BCA Students.

Finally we started to talk about History of Gnu/Linux qt 1.20 pm. we talked with students in Tamil itself .

Initially I started to talk about  Operating System, Proprietary Softwares, and FOSS , etc.,

Students too interacted with us , nicely !

And we showed Ubuntu OS and its 3D  Desktop animations and effects to them.

The main thing is , they didn’t heard about Linux.

This is first time , they were seen Linux GUI . And all of them are wonder by seeing the GUI of Linux.

And again using PDF , we talked discussed with those students about why we need Open Source.

Now Dastha , Raj and Vishnu were gave speech to them .  Raj made few comedies about Proprietary software.

Students are enjoyed !

( This is first time experience to all of us , especially to those 3 guys ! )

and I explained many thing about Viruses and Security and Open Source Languages , & Jobs .

and using PDF we showed them , ” How to install ubuntu as dual boot ” . we can not show them , ubuntu Live cd because of insufficient time .

so upto 3.15 pm we were took an introduction session about Gnu/Linuix  to those students…

Thanks to those students and staff to support to us to make this talk as memorable one ! ! !

Thanks to Vishnu, because ( he studied his ug in that college ) he only makes this Guest Lecture .

we hope, surely this guest lecture gave some basic idea about FOSS and Linux to those students .

And finally we told them about our Kanchi Linux User Group ( KLUG ) and its activities !
