decided to learn from the Plus Two Text book
of Kerala Syllabus.
- For moving FSUG's RYF activities ahead
we have planned to try for collaborating with `CDIT`
which is where Mr Tanzeem works. Also it was planned to talk to some of his
`contacts in the IT field (which includes CTO's in Technopark/ Thiruvananthapuram based companies)` who have interest in FOSS
promotional activities and have already given their willingness to invlove, in a discussion with Mr. Tanzeem earlier.
- Since this meeting prior to `Swathanthra.in` scheduled to be held on 20th and 21st Dec 2017
by `ICFOSS` has significance and the FOSS
community is awaiting many talks by noted personnels, of which the talk by the CEO ,
`purism` is of utmost significant and FSUG is eagerly awaiting the inevitable
change to the use of fully free hardware not
compromising a computer user's freedom
so that when he boots he uses `libreboot`
or `coreboot` and when he uses his computer OS
he uses only free firmwares and he can be
sure that all software he use is free software.
In addition he can also be sure that the
hardware accessories he uses are also
`non-tracking` and uses free firmwares.
