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 !
