Hi All,

         Yesterday we celebrated software freedom day(SFD) in our college. Me,varun and ashwini organised it.
         We didn't expected many people since it being a holiday and also people were off to their home just                 after  periodical. even we put the notice just one day before as everyone was busy in periodical.

         The event consisted of
        1 Introduction to glug-nith and campus ambassador program sarted by SunMicrosystem in our college.
        2 A detailed step by step installation of fedora 9 and opensolaris build 79.
        3 distibution of opensolaris dvd to everyone.
        We started at  4:30 in the evening with some 25 people, mostly new faces from ist year. We                                started the session  with the introduction to glug-nith and the ideology behind it, the opensouce concept           and  its learn and share philosophy!
        We had plans of warping up everything within one hour, but people kept pouring in and within half an hour         some 55 people were their in the seminar hall! infact three of us had to stand thoroughout the session as             their was no chair left.
        Student were quite interested and they did come up with lots of basic but interesting question!

     Varun and Ashwini covered the the installation of fedora and i did the opensolaris part!
     After that Ashwini covered the benefit of linux or rather open source over propitery OS.
    We have also told them to join our mailing list
    In the end we distributed the dvd of opensolaris . It all took  more than 2 hours but needless to say it was         really great and much more than what we expected.
