"The Windows system now has a new competitor Linux. This increasingly popular operating system developed by a Finnish engineering student Linus Torvalds in early 1990s is being predicted as the operating system of the future. And you get it for free on the web."
"The State government is not lagging behind in taking advantage of this operating system and has sought its software development based on Linux system. The ongoing Bangalore IT.Com `99 has an entire pavillion dedicated to Linux users, sellers and support providers."
"Once dismissed as the operating system for nerds, the user base is steadily growing and a support group - Linux India - a non- profit organisation is actively promoting this operating system for the last couple of years."
