Promoting Open Source
THE Free Open Source Software Group (FOSS) has been invited to demonstrate a wide range of open source applications at PC Fair 2006 (II), which will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from August 11 to 13.
FOSS is a two-year-old community comprising members who share a similar passion for open source software. Founder Ezwan Aizat said the inclusion of open source elements at the fair will be educational and help raise open source software's awareness level to the masses.
"We invite visitors to our booth (No. 410) at the fair and see the wide range of open source software available," he said.
The group plans to demonstrate a locally developed operating system which uses the national language at its booth.
