H! Nice to see all these ideas sprouting! :-) 1)GNU\Linux demo for freshers - anyone with free time is welcome to organize the session.. just get the kids (hope i'm wrong) and the box and the projector in one room, and vroom we go! 2) comparison of free and open unix kernels... i think we can manage (i'm wasting a lot of time these days...may be i can contribute something) i think we can do this in december, when we get some fresh air after all these exams, records and crap.. above all, this requires some prep- so it'll take time. 3)life of a program - let someone from the computer science dept take it up, cos these things are part of their syllabus. not necessarily final year, s5 or even s3 guys (or gals) can volunteer 4) i don't know if we can do it, but, for the gaming enthusiasts, can we organize a gaming demo? githin, don't u remember the q4 arena demo at the FOSS stall at MEC (Excel '06)? this is a nice way to attract kids towards linux...
Of course there should be someone other than githin to take the lead... someone from s5, to be more correct, that's how the generation extends!
If anybody could volunteer - a) Comparison of Free and open Unix kernels - Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris - at module level for second/third year students at funcitonal modules level. Should there be intro on each of these, beforehand?! b) The life of a program - From C to Assembly to Execution : This could be presented at a varying depths of detail. A intro 1 hr session could show a program getting compiled step by step, and the process in action. Getting a simulator like BOCHM for the latter would be great.
