Having a good time with KDE

I never thought I'd be having so much fun with KDE and FOSS Software as a whole. Its such a good way to learn things and contribute to something which is really beautiful.

Then I started to use KDE, which has a very intuitive interface for users. But here comes the real benefit - KDE is a Free Software, so anyone can contribute to the system and improve on it.

Singularity - An Open Source Operating System By Microsoft Research

t was 28th Of September, 2008 and there was again crowd at the Microsoft India Office, Bangalore.
