  1. Congratulations, You are providing a very valuable service free of charge.

    I have begun to use Kubuntu from last week. I got the CD by mail and I got it installed to work while keeping Windows for the moment. Once I get used to Kubuntu I am sure I will not need to use Windows.

    Presently I am studying the various programmes specially in Education. I think some of these programmes could be used by teachers to make their lessons more interesting and easy to their children.

    I certainly appreciate very much your effort to improve IT literacy in our country.
    Since your services are free even the students from low income families can get benefited.

    I think you should take steps to give publicity to your programme. You may try a couple of TV programmes and also some news items in Pariganaka magazine.

    In fact I am keeping my friends aware of this programme. In fact one of them got the Kubuntu CD from me to get it installed in his computer.

    I wish you success in your future activities.

    With Best regards

  7. You’ll get Updates for 10.04 till 2013. But for 11.04, you’ll get updates till 2012. What do you prefer? We are thinking of creating Linux 4 which may based on Ubuntu 11.04+ . But we’re in lack of financial funding for free distribution over snail mail. So anybody who wants it have to get a copy from Lankanet office, By downloading and by VPP. Any suggestion? Funding idea?

    Enable universal/Multiverse repositories in package manager.
    And Install the software you want. For example, VLC Player…
