FOSSFP: Free and Open Source Software Foundation of Pakistan®

Free Linux Operating System and Software Package for Pakistanis, NGOs, NPOs, CSOs, Government:
FOSSFP has introduced a free Linux distribution with office management packages for Pakistani citizens, Non-Profits, Academic Institutions in Pakistan based on the Debian Linux distribution called UBUNTU Linux.

Free & Open Source Software Foundation of Pakistan and Canonical Ltd. SA, have formed a collaboration in order to promote and build capacity for Canonical's Free and Open Source Software Linux Distribution "UBUNTU". FOSSFP will lead national level activities to promote the UBUNTU platform in academic institutions, public and private sectors. For the first time in Pakistan any organization has taken up the challenge to promote LINUX free in all socio economic sectors.

FOSSFP will provide capacity building and awareness in order to promote the wide-spread adoption and usage of Ubuntu. FOSSFP will also act as the root for distributing Ubuntu and providing technical support for this fantastic Linux platform throughout Pakistan. FOSSFP will also manage a complete website for Ubuntu and provide representation in the region. Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system, freely available with both community and professional support.

The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit.

These freedoms make Ubuntu fundamentally different from traditional proprietary software: not only are the tools you need available free of charge, you have the right to modify your software until it works the way you want it to.

FOSSFP encourages companies to offer technical support for Ubuntu and will provide capacity building services and strategic marketing support advise.
