There are a few college in chennai which is active in FOSS.I wish colleges realise the importance of FOSS in computer science education and research & development through FOSS.

I wish Velammal Engineering College emerges too in the prestigious list through its VECFOSS initiative.

FOSS is the right way for educating computer science. Computer science education lacks the analogy of dissecting the frog and learning biology, concept ! With a blackbox nothing can be learnt ! Thats true for software, user interface is useless to a computer student. He should be give code and ask to study modify and contribute to community.
