Respected Sir, Sub: Permission to install GNU/Linux.
If you visit the Computer Hardware Maintenance Lab that is now used as the Internet lab, you can find that most of the computers are infected with viruses. This virus disables copying and pasting functions when microsoft windows is running. Many students are wasting precious bandwidth by running p2p software and downloading songs, movies, cracked games etc.
The members of the FLOSS cell are interested in installing GNU/Linux on these machines. Normally, viruses don't infect GNU/Linux systems and the staff can effectively control the use of p2p software on these machines. Once installed, students can easily access the Internet and keep viruses and spy ware out. Most of the well known colleges have only GNU/Linux machines in their Internet centres.
Hence I would request you to grant me permission with go ahead with the installation process on September 30th, Saturday. The FLOSS members would do the installation and the other students who are interested can watch and study the installation procedure.
Yours Obediently Githin F Alapatt Student Coordinator FLOSS Cell -- Cheers :-) githinATgmailDOTcom Free as in Freedom http://githin.googlepages.com/ _______________________________________ FLOSS Cell Mailing List College of Engineering Chengannur floss-cec@xxxxxxxxxxxxx http://www.freelists.org/list/floss-cec
