I am Vidya, an Ubuntu user from India. In June 2005 I switched from a dual-boot PC to running only Ubuntu OS (5.10/Breezy) and my Linux journey has been a very positive experience. I had always wanted to volunteer and this came true with Ubuntu's "ship-it" program, which not only provides latest version but also helps spread the Ubuntu-cheer around. Another thing I like the most about the Ubuntu community is the open attitude and freedom granted to anyone with an interest in learning. Each individual has an equal opportunity as there are no irrelevant restrictions on the basis of country, age, qualification, gender, etc... to learn, contribute and improve their skills as per their interests.

== Ubuntu & I ==

 * Setup [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWomen Ubuntu-Women] : I admin its mailing list and by creating this open space we hope to increase the participation of women in the technical arena. To achieve this, I am trying to learn about packaging, testing and learning other technical details about Ubuntu and its relation with Debian and how they work in tandem.

 * Advocacy and [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IndianTeam Ubuntu-IN] :
 0. To increase Ubuntu-awareness in India, I had distributed my surplus Hoary CD's to many people locally and am happy to note that mostly students used it more than engineers. I plan to distribute the Breezy CD's to local school students and schools.
 1. Increase volunteer translators for Sanskrit. Main impediments are that its a classical language with '''zero''' commercial value resulting in low interest as its practically considered a dead language by many people.
 2. Action plan is := Rather than just evangelising about Ubuntu-Linux and handing out free CD's, a more focussed approach would be to target specific people (non-Linux users willing to try Ubuntu) and install/dual-boot Ubuntu for them if they cant do it themselves.
 3. Collect old computers and install Ubuntu and donate these to students/people/NGO's who cannot but new machines.
 4. With the setting up of our [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IndianTeam Ubuntu-IN] team, we plan to spread Ubuntu among local companies, Laptop and PC vendors.
 6. Increase the visibility by representing and promoting Ubuntu at local FLOSS events.
