Here’s an opportunity for FOSS consultants and firms to get FREE publicity
through LINUX For You!
Our interaction with IT managers has revealed that one of the biggest
obstacles faced by them while reviewing FOSS solutions is lack of information
about potential solution providers. It seems that if they had multiple
options, they would feel more comfortable in discussing their challenges with

taking an informed decision.
To bridge this gap, LINUX For You has been working on creating a Yellow Pages
section within the magazine itself, where anyone seeking a Linux/FOSS solution
provider can find them through a category-wise listing. In the last 2-3

we believe that there are many more out there, and the real value of FOSS
Yellow Pages (FYP) will only emerge once decision makers have ample choice to
THUS, THE SPECIAL OFFER: Any firm**, be it a one-man consultancy or an MNC,

extended if things work out well. Oh! The Yellow Pages listing will also be
made available online, shortly.
