Who am I ?
As if anybody cares ! |
Well, I am just an ordinary person who likes
freedom and worships liberty. I don't like keeping birds in cages, or
seeing golden fish in a glass balloon. And, I don't like being pushed
around by greedy bullies, who want me to take whatever rubbish they
dish out, tie up my hands with invisible strings, and also make me pay
all that torture ! I saw my best ideals being supported by the Linux
movement, so I thought I should become part of this movement.
If you really want to know more about me (but, why should you ?),
you can visit my
autobiographical page. And, you are also invited to visit the
homepage of Algologic
Research & Solutions -- an innovative and leading-edge
enterprise which I started some years ago.Here are

| I am incurably addicted to the Free Software Movement and
its flagship product: Linux. I am allergic to proprietary and
blackbox software. I get violent convulsions when I am exposed
to proprietary and blackbox software (read Microsoft).|
My favourites are
Open Suse and Ubuntu distributions,
although I am
not very uncomfortable with other distributions of Linux .
I go out of my way to help and assist anyone who wishes to
master these two distributions. When asked to install Linux, I
choose one or both of these two distributions. Of course, I never
create the rubbish called "dual boot system" which involves
Microsoft. That is why. the systems on which I install Linux, are
called ULB (Unpolluted Linux Box). I am of course proud of my
addiction. There are many things I have to learn still, but I do
not give up so easily.
Taking the world by storm :
I do my bit, to make Linux a little more enjoyable for all my
colleagues. I contribute to the Linux efforts in several ways. My
association with Unix started several years ago, when the POSIX
standardisation efforts started. I was the only Indian (based in
India), to contribute to, and be acknowledged in
the first Draft Standards of POSIX
developed by IEEE(USA). My
contributions to the Linux
Documentation Project have been found very useful, and are
appreciated by many Linux users worldwide. In fact, these
contributions are available as part of almost all major Linux
