"LINUX is a powerful, scalable and reliable operating system that is well suited for the Indian environment. What makes it ideally suited for the Indian enterprise?"

"Linux is an operating system developed in 1991 by Linus Torvalds. He developed it more as a hobby and displayed it on the internet for people to see the code and improve on it. Since then several thousand developers have contributed to it."

"Today Linux is rated highly as it has most of the features that an ideal operating system is expected to have (Recent statistics by IDC show that it is the fastest growing operating system and its growth last year was 166 per cent)."

"For India, it is important to leap frog generations of technology and go straight for the cutting edge one."
