Recently Aravindh Dorai sent us a mail via our site. Read the contents below.
" Kris Kamisetty from Intel directed me to this website, and I have to say - I'm really impressed! The work you are doing is truly inspiring and I have always dreamed of doing the same. In fact, my friend Sriram and I were planning on flying to India this summer to set up a computer lab in a rural Indian school (we currently reside in the US). Anyways, our idea was to set up a lab using thin clients so our hardware requirements would be really low. The server to which the clients are connected to would provide all the processing power as well as the hard disk space. This way, we figured that we can use old and low powered computers and still set up a successful lab. As for the operating system, we decided to use Edubuntu which has several productivity applications designed specifically for students. It would also allow the instructor to have control over every terminal.
Heres the website if you\'d like more information:
Thanks a lot for your mail and time Aravindh and I should say that i am delighted. We are trying hard to do more and we will. Thanks a lot again. Such mails encourage us and push us to do more.
