Linux :Lagan Laagi Hai

Today I installed Linux on my PC ,with the guidance of Shashi.For long I have been waiting for this day,really enjoyed it.

I am a great fan and follower of the revolution called as
opensource.Linux,Perl ,Python,Music,Vedas and Love- all those objects which don’t follow any boundries ,I am for them..

Heared so much about Prof.Stallman and Linus Torvalds ,but it was Dr.Anil Seth in Goa ,who triggered my thoughts in the direction of promoting the Linux and opensource software.In Goa ,I first understood about the Linux user group and various communities involved..Infact I have used and seen GUI’s of almost all the Linux’s in use-Mandrake,Knoppix,Red hat ,SuSe and Fedora2/3 but have not got my hands dirty with the installation .

My Linux is RedHat 3.0 Enterprise edition ,which Shashi received from one of his colleagues.Now my next “Action Item “for the Linux is to install all the required software and files needed for the making up of a small studio ,in whch I can mix the songs with the rythems ,interfacing with the microphones(well soon I am going to buy a home theatre systems)..But yes ,I know I have to work a lot for finding out the things compatible to the Linux..No compromises with Linux man…I’ll do it..

Then second priority will be to learn Perl ,which comes free with the plethora of packages ..
Perl and Python are the languages of the future ,Ihave attended certain workshop on Python-that is where I inculcated this thougth.

I bought a new harddisk of Samsung too,today only.Hopefully it fullfill my ambitions of getting the job comfortably.

I really have no time but if I get it -then you will really find me going in front ,advertising and posting in favour of the Linux.To learn networking in Linux at least to connect 3/4 PC’s to form the home network then to understand the mailing versions of Evolution and Thunderbird is also on the cards.
Someday ,hopefully wil be able to initiate people in using the Linux in all the Internet surfing cafes in town.:-}

  1. The power of Linux will be felt sooner or later.We need to start a revolution to encourage people to use an contribute for linux.Unleash the POWER OF LINUX

  2. I was just thinking what things would be nessesary to create a Ideal Desktop Linux Distro. When I say “Ideal” I mean that a Newbie should be able to operate it and should feel that it is more easier/as easy to operate as Windows.I found current Desktop Distros lacking certain features . I have listed them below.1) Lack of a graphical application installers (aka Installsheild) and a Add/Remove option in Control Panel (control panel discussed below)Install Shield X is available but what about a GNU tool.2) Dependency ProblemsHow about a installer that bundles all the required dependencies and installs them if needed. I think I have heard of a installer called Autoinstall, but cant confirm it.3) Office Apps (heavy OO)I havent checked out OO 2.0 beta , but OO is pretty heavy on the system.A lighter Office suite (need not have all the feature that OO has, 80 to 90 % of OO features will do). Should be fast4) A light webbrowser and Mail Client (Mozilla was earlier bundled)Firefox has taken care of this :-). Evolution and thunderbird shine here.5) Application in MSWin that allows Access to a linux FS. (A tool is available for ext2..cant remember name)Could any body point to a Tool that allows Access to ReiserFS from win.6) A light window manager (KDE and GNOME are still heavy for a 128 mb ram system)XFCE/ IWM rock.7) Media Player with capablity to play all/most media files.Mplayer with plugins is great (Licensing issues have to be taken care of)8) No need to edit any config file (Control Panel)This has been taken care off properly by modern desktop distros but some distros still have multiple control panelsYAST is great in this regard but extremely slow.9) Behavior and look and feel a bit like MSWin.This is what I think is not actually nessesary. Linux WM’s can do a lot more but This is for those Windows USers who like operating windows.XPDE is good. But could do better.10) One app for one job.Desktop Distros once again shine here. But choice of apps not always good.Please let me know any comments/suggestions . Please also let me know what you would like to see in a “Ideal Desktop Linux Distro”.

  3. Dear Sir,We have a Local Area Network Of 25Computers. We are using Windows xp Peer to peer network.It is possible to use a linux server and Cliemt as a windows Xp.We need a powerful server for better administration, security and control.Please help us in selecting the proper server for our network.Looking forward for Your reply.Regards,Vishal kundaikarSystem AdministratorICFAI Porvorim

  4. Vishal..It’s definitely possible to setup a Linux server as a domain controller andallow Win XP clients to log on to this server, access file shares and more. Wecan advise you on what else is possible if you can elaborate on yourrequirements for control and security.Linux does provide you with better security than a Windows server, at far lesscost. Not zero cost, since if you want a professional installation and ongoingsupport of the installation, you need to pay for such support. It is, ofcourse, much cheaper than paying for Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft support.You could, of course, also get your enthusiastic students (whom wecongratulate!) to help set it up, and basic functionality would work well andreliably.If you’re willing to consider Linux on your desktop, too, Mandrake 10.1 is avery attractive desktop – and there’s also the possibility that you can set upthin clients, which reduces your administrative overhead of individuallymanaging so many machines!Do let us know more about what you plan!Online Productivity Solutions Pvt. Ltd., where I work in Linux support,maintains a large number of Linux servers for clients across Goa, and our ratesreflect the quality of our work. Let me know off-the-list, if you would likeus to contact you to discuss paid professional assistance with yourinstallation, with or without future support. We can offer you sound advice onhardware, networking, software, and other infrastructural decisions, besidesthe Linux setup itself.

  5. Vishal,Firstly, yes you can have linux server and client as win boxes. To help you select the server you have to let us know what dowant the server to do ? Would it act as an internet gateway,would it be a mail server, would it be a file server ? Also, you can also think of moving moving some of your XP PC’sto Linux Desktops. Good linux distro’s are Debian, Mandrake, Fedore Core. If youare new to Linux I would suggest you use Mandrake 10.1 or FedoraCore 3 for both Server and clients.

  6. BILL GATES IN HEAVEN———————-Bill Gates died and, much to everyone’s surprise, went to Heaven.Saint Peter said, with a background like yours, you’ll be getting a plum job assignment.”Your job will be to supervise Heaven’s new data processing center.We’re building the largest computing facility in creation. Half a million computers connected by a multi-segment fiber optic network, all running into a back-end server network with a thousand CPUs on a gigabit channel. Fully fault-tolerant. Fully distributed processing.Saint Peter and Bill went to Heaven’s new data processing center. It was a truly huge facility, a hundred times bigger than the Astrodome. Workmen were crawling all over the place, getting the miles of fiber optic cables properly installed. But the center was dominated by the computers. Half a million computers, arranged neatly row-by-row, half a million PC’s …. …. Running Linux…. …. all running Openoffice software! Not a Single Windows in sight! Not a single byte of Microsoft code!The thought of spending the rest of eternity using products that he had spent his whole life working to destroy was too much for Bill.”What about XP???” he exclaimed. “What about Windows??? What about Excel??? What about Word???””You’re forgetting something,” said Saint Peter.”What’s that?” asked Bill plaintively.”This is Heaven,” explained Saint Peter. “We need a computer system that’s heavenly to use. If you want to build a data processing center based on PCs running Windows, then … GO TO HELL!”

  7. Bill Gates in Hell————————–So Bill Gates goes to hell. Satan greets him, “Welcome Mr. Gates, we’ve been waiting for you. This will be your home for all eternity. You’ve been selfish, greedy and a big liar all your life. Now, since you’ve got me in a good mood, I’ll be generous and give you a choice of three places in which you’ll be locked up forever.”Satan takes Bill to a huge lake of fire in which millions of poor souls are tormented and tortured. He then takes him to a massive coliseum where thousands of people are chased about and devoured by starving lions. Finally, he takes Bill to a tiny room in which there is a PC in the corner.Without hesitation, Bill says “I’ll take this option.” “Fine,” says Satan, allowing Bill to enter the room. Satan locks the room after Bill. As he turns around, he bumps into Lucifer.Lucifer: That was Bill Gates! Why did you give him the best place of all?Satan: That’s what everyone thinks!Lucifer: What about the PC?Satan (laughing): It’s got Windows 95! And it’s missing three keys!Lucifer: Which three?Satan (screaming): Control, Alt and Delete!
