Ubuntu in India: Do you wish to try out?

with 8 comments


Of late, there’s been a lot of news about my favourite operating system, Ubuntu. Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn was released, and now there have been reports that Dell PCs will ship pre-installed with Linux.

People in India who’re interested to try Ubuntu, with very less bandwidth especially, how do you get the discs?

You could get your discs via Shipit, but it takes time. There’s an Indian Ubuntu team striving hard to spread Ubuntu. It’s active all over India, and you have many regional teams functioning. Here’s a CD Request Wiki.

If you need a CD, you could try contacting these regional teams. A list of regional teams is here. Each team probably has it’s very own IRC channel and you could try asking them for CDs and other Ubuntu Support. #ubuntu-in is the Indian Team’s Official IRC Channel.

Now, if you need another quick option (fast delivery), a new site has been launched at They will ship both CDs and DVDs for all versions of Ubuntu 7.04: Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Edubuntu. Don’t forget to bookmark

    Good news for Linux and open source software lovers in India. A survey was conducted on IdeaStorm by Dell in this regard in February,07.

    I am hoping it to be big success.
