features of FOSS i.e.* Freedom to use, freedom to examine , Freedom to
redistribute and freedom to modify*. Then I introduced the GNU/Linux, the
Linux Kernel, how it is built and how is the release process of the Linux
kernel with the short video. Then I introduced the Fedora GNU/Linux
Operating system. I showed the live installation of the Fedora 20 distro
