Hack the MaSH!
SPACE has an interesting contest for students: Hack the MaSH The idea is to introduce students to the process of writing good quality code for Free Software projects. A few third semester students compiled and tried out MaSH and came with a "bug report" in my class - I used that opportunity to do a quick "real-time" demo of bug-squashing - Alex identified the problem and we had it fixed easily ...

Balu might want to read the whole of the open letter below: http://deepakphatak.blogspot.com/2008/05/this-is.html And then decide whether to characterize concerns about microsoft as "Fuss" or some real concern. Will some This is just one of many examples.

Hello Sir, I am working in IT industry for past 3 years. For my personal use I use Windows and for professional use, I use more of Windows and little bit of Linux. I could not reason what is all the fuss against Windows, because we(small, mid-sized, big IT firms) also do similar business as Windows. We also thrive with the money got by selling source code, executables and related services. We also demand for AMC(Annual Maintenance Contract) for providing extended services. Thanks, Balu.
