ABSTRACTS OF LECTURE
Lecture : Awareness on open source technologies & VMWare
Many people will hear about Linux in the news, being the cool operating system that everyone can use free of charge. Those who become interested in it enough or actually start working with it, will learn that it is made out of many independent "open source" components. But what is open source and free software? What distinguishes them from other software that is available to the public at no cost or is distributed as shareware?

VMware is a tool used to run multiple operating systems (OS) on a PC. It is recognized for its broad operating system support, rich user experience, comprehensive feature set, and high performance. It's the perfect companion for any technical professional who wants to save significant time with a tool that is backed by world-class support.
