  8. 8. 19 April 2008 LUG @ IITD 9 Why should we useWhy should we use “Open Source” Software“Open Source” Software  It permits students to learn how software works. When students reach their teens, some of them want to learn everything there is to know about their computer system and its software. That is the age when people who will be good programmers should learn it. To learn to write software well, students need to read a lot of code and write a lot of code. They need to read and understand real programs that people really use. They will be intensely curious to read the source code of the programs that they use everyday.

  10. 10. 19 April 2008 LUG @ IITD 11 Games!Games! For some reason, there is a constant mindset that there are not many games for Linux when in fact there are many. I don't mean the small ones that are included with GNOME or KDE, but full blown projects that deliver captivating and deep game play experiences. There are even a few good commercial games out there for Linux, but that's not the topic of today's article. These games which we are going to discuss today have the following features :- 1. 100% free... no strings attached. 2. Cannot require wine to run. 3. Installation must be painless. 4. Cannot be an add-on to a commercial game.
