Why wait for it to happen at CEG ??
Why cant MIT and CEG consolidate their efforts ?
When I was in MIT the approach to the whole thing
was the same.
MIT separate and CEG separate. We all shared the
same network, the same
resources, the same systems, proxies etc
Why then cant you all get together at least for
YOu would benefit tremendously
The real problem is that there are only few
students here to show their interests in GNU/Linux. I
even tried convincing them about the advantages of
free software, but they still stay behind. This was
something like saying `if one is sluggish then
everybody else will be sluggish`.
The case with MIT might be different. We here in
CEG, were told by our seniors to score a very high
CGPA (though the motivation of knowledge was meagre
from them), in the beginning. This would have shifted
the mindset of the students. But in MIT, CS course
was introduced for the first time, thus the students
are _hunting_ (for knowledge) to get used to
technology. I think the MIT people will continue this
same enthusiasm through all upcoming years. That's a
great advantage for them.
May be I should invite some of the MITians to
conduct FLOSS oriented talk at CEG, so that a kind of
competitive minds can be seen here.
