As if anybody cares !

Well, I am just an ordinary person who likes freedom and worships liberty. I don't like keeping birds in cages, or seeing golden fish in a glass balloon. And, I don't like being pushed around by greedy bullies, who want me to take whatever rubbish they dish out, tie up my hands with invisible strings, and also make me pay for all that torture !

I saw my best ideals being supported by the FOSS movement. So, I thought I should become part of the FOSS movement. And, I became an adherent of Libreplanet .

Ever since, I have strictly followed a zero tolerance policy towards Microsoft (and other restrictive, proprietory software products) .

I never miss an opportunity (this website is an example) to warn my friends, colleagues, and students of the perils of following the crowd and falling prey to Microsoft .

If you really want to know more about me (but, why should you ? ) . You can visit my autobiographical page. And, you are also invited to visit the homepage of Algologic Research & Solutions -- an innovative and leading-edge enterprise which I started some years ago.
 

Addiction

suselogo I am incurably addicted to the Free Software Movement (FOSS) and its flagship product: GNU/Linux (aka Linux). I am allergic to proprietary and blackbox software. I get violent convulsions when I am exposed to proprietary and blackbox software (read Microsoft). My favourites are Open Suse and , Ubuntu suselogodistributions although I am not very uncomfortable with other distributions of Linux .

I go out of my way to help and assist anyone who wishes to master these two distributions. When asked to install Linux, I choose one or both of these distributions. I have created a concept of "twin boot system", for this purpose. Of course, I never create the rubbish called "dual boot system" which often involves Microsoft. That is why. the systems on which I install Linux, are called ULB (Unpolluted Linux Box). I am of course proud of my addiction. There are many things I have to learn still, but I do not give up so easily.
 

Technical contributions

Taking the world by storm : I do my bit, to make Linux a little more enjoyable for all my colleagues. I contribute to the Linux efforts in several ways.

Contributions to IEEE's POSIX Standard: ieeelogo I grew up with Unix, the predecessor of Linux. My association with Unix started several years ago, when the POSIX standardisation efforts started (198x). I was the only Indian (based in India), to contribute to, and be acknowledged in the first Draft Standards of POSIX developed by IEEE(USA).

Contributions to LDP: My contributions to the Linux Documentation Project have been found very useful, and are appreciated by many Linux users worldwide. In fact, these contributions are available as part of almost all major Linux distributions, worldwide.

Support services : Algologic Research & Solutions, a Consulting company started by me, provides a wide range of support for your Linux installation. Algologic can also offer you tools to assist you in installation, configuring,software development, Sysadmin, housekeeping, troubleshooting, shell scripts.
