Hi All,

Sampada Community is happy to announce *Gnu/Linux Habba v3*. This time
we are  @ NMAM Institute of Technology, Nitte (60km's from Mangalore) on
7th February.

The event aims to:

    * Create awareness and share information about Free and Open Source
    * Clarify doubts regarding availability, philosophy, usage related
issues, to the extent possible.
    * Explore GNU/Linux and its tools with education as an aspect.
    * Distribute GNU/Linux distributions for people to try it out. (Free
CDs, no cost involved)
    * Help people install GNU/Linux on their machines (laptops @ venue).
    * Help people configure and optimize GNU/Linux installations for
using Kannada.
    * Answer queries pertaining to usage of Kannada on the GNU/Linux
platform, to the best of our knowledge.
    * Help people to avoid proprietary lock-ins.

GNU/Linux Habba was started in Bangalore with its first edition in April
2008 by volunteers of Sampada Community (http://sampada.net) to not only
spread the word about free software, but also to introduce GNU/Linux to
the non-technical computer users. The first edition organized at Indian
Institute of Science, Bangalore received tremendous response with more
than 377 registrations running up to the event. Many participants
installed GNU/Linux on their Desktops/Laptops and learnt how to use
Kannada on it. From NGOs to Public sector officials keen to learn more
about GNU/Linux - many people participated in the event. Following the
success of the first edition, the group of volunteers behind the event
decided to extend the festival to other cities in Karnataka, starting
with Mysore. The second edition of GNU/Linux Habba (http://habba.in) was
held on 21st September, 2008 at Physics Department, University of
Mysore. Following the overwhelming response to the event, we have
decided to enable users to work with Gnu/Linux at Mangalore.
