| Dhir decided that he would go in for an open 
| source IT infrastructure management tool,

| How has your experience been with open source?
| There is a big misconception that open source 
| is cheap and free. I would rather say its 
| virtues are flexibility, robustness and its 
| capability to address any kind of business 
| challenge, which is what, is often missing in 
| other options. For one, security loopholes 
| are less of a concern with open source. Many 
| applications and the email platforms have now 
| been virtualized and powered with open source 
| at the company. And that has interestingly 
| been with purely in-house efforts. That has 
| helped us save a lot of capex and operational 
| costs.

MSU BCA students' Install Fest' a treat for IT savvy

,----[ Quote ]
| This is one fest in M S University (MSU) that
| will definitely be different from the usual
| students' events. Install Fest - to be hosted
| by Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA)
| students - will celebrate the launch of two
| operating systems by Linux Worldwide. Instead
| of the usual cultural and competitive events,
| visitors will be given demonstration of the
| systems and can even download it in laptops
| or CPUs as well as pen drives.
| This event is on similar lines that happen in
| software hubs like Silicon Valley in USA on
| every weekend. The fest will begin with
| demonstration of the usage and features of
| the community driven operating systems -
| OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. BCA students will also
| orient people on different uses of Linux like
| coding, presentations, office, gaming,
| designing and other features in the Saturday
| event.
