This note is a somewhat delayed report from Ashutosh Naik

late last night from Belgaum (150 kms away), after a very interesting
visit there. FN
---------- Forwarded message ----------

Day 1 of GNUBeLUG was full of action. Remember, It was
the first major event organised by ilug-belgaum.
To begin with, the principal of GIT, Dr. D H Rao
inaugurated the function by lighting the lamp. This
was a really good way of starting the function because
with one light, U can light another.. And that's the
way the spirit of Free Software multiplies.

The trend during the day was the GNu philosophy..
People were shocked to know that propreitory companies
had taken their freedom for granted, And most
definitely agreed that GNU/Linux was altleast worth a
try..The Principles of Free, Open Source and
Propreitory software were argued till length

After the talk on GNU principles by myself, We had a
brief Installation seesion, A talk on GNU/Linux in
daily life by Gurpreet Singh, And finally a talk on
Hacking Kernel Modules by a true hacker, Rahul Iyer.

There were also loads of everyday questions answered
by the panelists which included myself, Rohan, Bhaskar
Ghose, Gurpreet Singh and Sanket Patil. Most of these
questions were on switching to GNU/Linux and the
configuration issues involved

Finally the meet ended with a demo of the Indlinux v
0.37 project and a demo of Knoppix

We do look forward to your company tommorrow.. which
promises to be more action-packed as compared to today

Tomm's Attractions :
- Embedded Linux by Trevor Warren
- Setting Up GNU/Linux as a WebServer - Dr. Bhat
- GNU/Linux on the desktop - Arvind yadav
