GO OPEN (Bringing Free & Open Software to all)



GO OPEN
Bringing Free & Open Software to all

This is a project i have taken up as a part of my SELP Program (where I am a Coach)
There are hundreds of projects which the Participants, their Coaches (like me) and even the Program Leader take up. The Little timer which shows the time at a signal for the lights to go green is a result of one such project.


The Objective of my Project is to
  • Take Open Software to EVERYONE
  • Most Open/Free is available for ZERO COST, the greater objective is to get/take a complete SUITE of Applications available in one place
  • We have something already available OPEN DISK (Ready Made)
  • This contains A Complete Suite of applications from Browsers, Media Players, Chat, Office Suite, Audio Editor, Games, etc. (almost an application for your every need).
  • Some Like TurboCash (an alternative or something comparable to tally) might be missing.
  • But I/We are here to put in the missing bits :-)
  • NOW Imagine
  • Regular People - Just getting their work done (For FREE)
  • Nerds (n WannaBE Nerds) - Can make a wonderful start to their careers looking into the code we normal wouldn't have wouldn't have no clue of.
  • Non-Geeks can even translate to have the interface available in local languages for EXAMPLE
  • The possibilities are endless . . .
  • There are more objectives
  • IS Distribution of Software is the only thing ?
  • What is the Concept of "OPEN" ?
  • What is available, Who can contribute, Can i Just Use
  • Wikipedia, Google Wave (something from the same philosophy)
  • For ME
  • Its a passion
  • A passion which i can use as an excuse to keep in touch with my friends.
  • Don't Know What else :-)


BTW : This project is not mine; ITS OURS 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This post will be constantly EDITED to reflect changes made by me/others on GOOGLE-WAVE
Just leave a comment to get involved :-)

i'll do something about the formatting soon (bullets / indent), as of now this is a copy paste with a little loss of formatting

You should also try SSuite Office for a free office suite. They have a whole range of office suites that are free for download.

Their software also don't need to run on Java or .NET, like so many open source office suites, so it makes their software very small and efficient.

You may try these links:
