Surprise Package - CDAC

Looks like every BSNL Broadband Subscriber has received a free copy of "Tamil Software Tools".

Released by the Ministry of Communications.

The CD Contains 100 Tamil Fonts, Bharateeya (Open Source Office Suite in Indian Languages), Firefox Browser in Tamil :) , Tamil Dictionary and many more.

This came to me as a surprise. BSNL also had given a small page-let that talks about various Jargons, Factors for Speed and few other things that will be of full use to the Novice Broadband users. :)

Way to Go !! Best way to stop piracy, is to sell the softwares free.

Whoops ! Will that mean - I should work for free ?
