During the install fest we will also be launching India’s first
Freedom Toaster. Freedom Toaster is a conveniently located,
self-contained, computer-based, Free Software vending machine. The
freedom toaster houses more than 50 GNU/Linux distributions and BSD
Unix’s. You bring the media, choose your distro, then burn, it’s as
simple as that;). The freedom toaster was inspired by the original
freedom toaster(s) created by the Shuttleworth Foundation and was
realised jointly by Zyxware Technologies and the GNU/Linux Users
Group, Trivandrum. More information about the Freedom Toaster is
available at http://freedomtoaster.in/
The program is organized in partnership with Kerala State IT

program is sponsored by BSNL(http://www.bsnl.in).
