Notes from a freed.in ~ FOSS conference in New Delhi with videos

Posted on in Categories Beyond nixCraft, GNU/Open source, India, News last updated October 11, 2007

I missed FOSS conference in New Delhi ~ over 700 people, two days of sheer fun, excitement and lots of FOSS :( I was in Chennai.. anyway freed.in is the leading community event in the Indian sub-continent and the developing world, promoting freedom in technology, software and other related fields, and personal privacy. The annual event makes free and open source software more visible to the world, and shares its excitement with everybody. freed.in helps nurture the community and enables networking within and outside the community in a fun environment. The event strives towards seeding of new projects.

Happy 8th Birthday, OpenSSH!

OpenSSH is most prominent implementation of the SSH protocol. I can’t imagine my life without OpenSSH. Almost all of my devices / server / network equipment such as routers and tiny embedded device has OpenSSH these days.

From OpenBSD journal:

Eight years ago today, Sept 26 1999, Theo de Raadt committed the initial source code for OpenSSH to the OpenBSD repository. The code was a fork of Björn Grönvall’s OSSH, which was derived from an early version of the increasingly “less free” ssh from Tatu Ylönen.
