F/OSS : Key Points OS Easy to Use, Deploy and Test before Installation Open Office Support large number of File Extensions Easy Administration Tools, Less Virus, Less System stable problems Online Packages Repositories Huge Community Support Less Vendor Specific Drivers Required Easy Backup Tools Secure No Cost to Use, Support and Upgradation
Problems to Implement • Weaning users from the traditional tools they are accustome to. • Study well before use. • Patience • Hardware specific Softwares • Well Internet/LAN connectivity
What we have done... We have already overcome the few problems of F/OSS Implementation Except to replace each users desktop. We are smoothly running... eLearning Moduler Object Oriented Learning Environment, CMS on Fedora Server http://technet.titsbhiwani.org. FTP server ftp://technet.titsbhiwani.org MSDNAA FTP Site Telnet Server Software Deployment Server on Fedora (Virtual Machine) Thin Clients and Remote Accessiblity
What we require... Rather then to pay companies we should move to F/OSS for that we require • Support from Administration (Director/Management) • Encouraging Faculty/Students. • Build a team of motivated OSS Professionals. • Training/Motivation to the Staff to use OSS. • A Helpdesk. • Research & Development Department
Our Contribution in F/OSS • We are the Various Linux ISO Image Tester and Distributor • Educator • Developer • Implementation Support Provider • Institute MOODLE Administrator • Desktop/Server Administration Support Provider • We have own Mirror Server
Suggestions • We can move User Desktop from Proprietary Software to Linux Desktop • Encourage to use Open Office, Firefox (CrossPlatform) • Use LowHardware Machine with LTSP • IP Chains to Setup Firewall, Squid for distribution of bandwidth and SARG to monitor its consumption • Linux Apache MySQL PHP for Programming Environment • Webmin for System Administration and NTOP to manage and monitor the entire Network • Backup on NAS using FreeNAS and OpenFiler • EMail Server using QMail • Library on Koha Software
