Free means its not cheap!!!

Hi there!!!

I dont know wheather u understand the title of this blog. I really mean it . Living in India for so many years. I can say there is a general blind belief ... that if anything comes for free .. it will be of cheap quality.....

I do agree that its true for few instances but not for all??? For example

If a new product fails to hit the market. You can see that product along with some average product as a freebie..

Many a times you can see "Buy one get one free" etc etc banners .. All these .... atleast most of these are based on "Free matlab(means) cheap quality" theme.

But there are few instances where people really want to give somethings Free but no body is interested in it.!!!

One more instance is .. .. we know about all these "VARA DAKSHINE" (dowry) stuff ... right!!!

But we see few people who really not ready to take dowry .. but these oldies(not only oldies some times even educated fools ) thing that ... He (the Groome) is having some defect thats why he is not ready to take dowry...... This is the usual scenario .. So because of this fact .. Many people who are really against of these dowry stuff .. wil agree to take dowry .. inorder to get married!!!! thats really strange and bad according to me..

This applies to my favorite OS LINUX as well!!! I have seen people talking about it without having any knowledge about it. Since Linux comes free .. its not cheap!!! its really great OS according to me.

I do agree that in its initial stages things were difficult to handle Linux . But now atleast with Fedora core 4 people should try to adopt it than to deny with reasons.. that its difficult ... its free .its not easy !!!.. etc etc.. etc.

It is free because its developed by thousands of peoples' Free time....

One last thing..for the people who say Linux is difficult!!!

"Kalioovargu Bramha vidye kalitha mele kothi vidye" . this is a famous proverb in Kannada .Which means

" Any new thing .. before learning looks like huge difficult task.. once u learn it... its just a monkey trick"

Anyways i am happy with it .. Will be trying to impove its user friendliness...


Now about me i will write .. when i get mood!!! Usually its difficult for me to introduce my self .. lets continue like this ...

Have a great Day,
