An open-source initiative for computing in
We is confronted with
insurmountable opportunities. --
We have a two-fold aim at present: (a) in the near to medium term we
are focussing on localizing Gnome, KDE, etc., in Oriya, (b) over the
longer term, we hope to develop a user-friendly version of Linux that
is in Oriya at all levels visible to the casual user.
How to contribute
We are looking for open-source developers to work with us. We are
faced with technical, linguistic, and organizational
challenges. Anybody with enthusiasm is invited to contact us, regardless
of experience. Your feedback and suggestions are also solicited. Come
join us, the life that you change may be your own.
