Ubuntu Tamil Team

Tiruppur, Nov 22. The Textile Town of TamilNadu, India - Tiruppur(1) witnessed Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex release by its IT Association - TITA(2). Members of Tiruppur IT Association were demonstrated Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex and its various features starting from Tamil Language support, Multimedia Capabilities, Office Suites, Package Management techniques, Wine etc.,

Ubuntu Tamil Team put forth the idea, that a one day Monthly Training program be organized for people who purchase computers through the Association Members, on Ubuntu by the Association itself. This will motivate people to switch over to Free Software with confidence.

Sri Ramadoss and Siva from Ubuntu Tamil Team conducted the event. The second day event explored the Ubuntu Server capabilities for the TITA members. More demand were made on the Server segment.

It was a memorable event and Special Thanks for Tiruppur IT Association for providing us this opportunity. Our heart felt gratitude to Mr. Ravichadran, President of IT association, Mr. Babu, Mr. Thiyagu, Mr. Senthil and others for backing and helping us in conducting this event.
