Just giving you feedback regarding FreeMedia program i was not in town
recent weeks so couldnt attend the meetings... as you can see at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Distribution/FreeMedia/India we have a
rather small list this month and i was thinking that its possible to
fill 100% of them, out of 28 we already have shipped 6 thanks to
RamamurthyShiroor and MehulPatel
I would like to get a little help regarding this if anyone of you can
take up at least 1 media responsibility... please reply this thread
the number you can take up.. every one will count... meanwhile i am
preparing to clear the backlog since May and will be shipping 5 for
this month.. I am proposing to terminate all those previous May 2007..
Thanks for your support.

There are 42 days left before GITEX in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Here is a quick update:
Red Hat is being very supportive. They are providing the Fedora
Project with a dedicated demo pod. One urgent task is to submit the
design for the large demo pod sign.
The Fedora Project will have the opportunity to show Fedora 7 in
action booting on a laptop, from a live CD and from a USB stick. We
hope to give out a few hundred Fedora live CDS and explain how to spin
custom versions with Revisor.
Since this is a commercial exhibition, we will be explaining open
source concepts to members of the business community, and dispelling
myths surrounding free and open source software.
We also will assist in demonstrating the OLPC XO laptop. This is a
great opportunity to expose government representatives from Africa,
the Middle East and Asia to the One Laptop Per Child Project.
What we desperately need is people willing to commit a few hours to
man the booth, answer questions, do demos and show the Fedora Project
at its finest. Please contact me any which way you can if you are

After a long discussions and few presentation, i have convinced Mozambique
Ministry of Finance (SISTAFE) to migrate their workstation around the
country from MS Windows to Linux (Fedora 7), now they have officially
approved the migration country wide and i will supervise this migration,
plus will help them in end user training, its the first time in Mozambique
that a Govt. department have opt for Linux (Fedora) and in my opinion it has
been a big achievement, as after their migration i will be able to speak
with other ministries and private firms.
