Today, I woke up at 8, took a quick shower and went to see our 3 young friends. They were still alive after having slept in the students’ dormitories.
At 9:30 we went to the official speeches for the launching of the ACM Programming Contest event.
After lunch, the students started their practice session at the IIT-K computer center. Quoting Mr Tiwari, the Manager:
IIT Kanpur has a 95% Unix and Linux-based computing facilities.
Of course I was thrilled… Bill Gates, hear this: “You only have 5% here…” :-)
By the way, the picture shows a 400-node Sun and HP Linux-based cluster used by researchers throughout IIT.
I can only dream of something like this in Mauritius :-)
Yeah the great Linux.
Avinash expect this of course.
Why not put forward the idea of using linux for the university (UOM). since the module OS is not taught for all course(e.g IS)
Perhaps shall be more interesting.
What do you think avinash.
Mange are zote
