"FreeOS.com, an India-based free operating system resource center, is doing its part to ensure that free and open source software is available in India and is being promoted in other countries."

"Prakash Advani, FreeOS.com's CEO, has worked toward the promotion of free operating systems since first using Linux in 1996 and started FreeOS.com in 1998 to push those promotion efforts to the next level. "We plan to do whatever is necessary to promote the use of free operating systems," Advani said. "I'll be happy to get any feedback on what we should do. We currently do whatever we feel is necessary--right from providing CD's, training, solutions, consulting, articles, support, etc."

"The Linux community has responded--and not just in India, Advani said. "We have grown in leaps and bounds in traffic. In the last one month itself our traffic has doubled. We currently get about 20,000 hits a day," he said. "We get 40 percent traffic from the U.S. and also get significant traffic from Germany and Canada. Our stats show that most of our visitors are business visitors--IT managers, etc."
