Conducting meetings on saturdays in our college (be it any saturday of
the month) is out of the question.. Its because the college works 8.30
to 16.30 on saturdays (all of them).. We can try and get permission
for a Sunday meet though.. Again, getting permission depends on who
you're approaching.. Staff in my department (EEE) don't know Linux has
GUI.. Whats even worse is that there are many teachers in IT and CSE
departments hate Linux (for some reason).. Ashok has even told me
about a teacher explaining to his class "Why Windows is the world's
best OS" during an OS lab session..
