Linux

More than 200 students from schools and pre-university (PU) colleges in Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, and Kasaragod participated in competitions based on open-source software in a city college on Thursday. The event titled “Byte-Struck '12” was held at P.A. College of Engineering (PACE), to create awareness about free open-source software (FOSS) among high school and PU students.

FOSS is non-proprietary software.

Deviprasath, a student at PACE and one of the co-ordinators for the event, told The Hindu that the aim of the event was to apprise the students of the fact that Linux could be interactive.
