“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.
