Why should you watch my movie “The Linux Guy” ?

Hello Friends,

I have been earning my bread and butter since last 8 years of my career and have been love with this fantastics OS i.e called Linux which has been a milestone breakthrough in IT introducing open source philosophy considering enormous amount of money for the companies who required to run proprietary software paying huge licensing fees for the renewal,support and upgrades.

This idea of developing a new OS by Sir Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman the main man behind the open source (GPL) brought a revolution by introducing OS & Softwares with Linux clubbed with open source model under GPL(General Public License).

I always was thinking out of box and do something in the entertainment industry along with my regular job. It took time and guts to make a movie called “The Linux Guy” to give something back to the linux the OS which has paid my bills and also helped many students of mine to get a good remuneration jobs across the world. I was nicnk named as “The Linux Guy” being invited to various open source conferences to speak on Linux along with various colleges ,schools and universities. Linux also got me published in newspaper and also helped many students to undertake the non conventional careers under Linux like Linux system administration,networking-security, embedded Linux, device drivers, cloud etc.

So my movie is almost complete and I would insist once that every Linuxite and IT professional should watch my movie and support me. I have given my heart and soul including my hard earned money to this movie.¬† Please support me and spread the word among your circles,groups,network of friends & relatives to watch my movie “The Linux Guy”

Open source Document Management Systems

Documents management has been very important  for every organization for the process and handling of various important documents for travel, employees, financial, expenses etc. So there is a very important need of a good document management system which is cost efficient and also easy to use so here I am listing out some of the open source document management systems which can fit in your needs and save a big cost to your company too.

I personally prefer openKM which is one of the best document management system which allows businesses to control the production, storage, management and distribution of electronic documents, yielding greater effectiveness and the ability to reuse information and to control the flow of the documents. More details

I am also a big fan of alfresco which has it’s own both enterprise and open source community versions as per your needs and it is one of the best in support when you go for commercial enterprise licenses making it at par with other document management system.¬† More details

Another one of the good DMS is LogicalDoc where documents can be organized into hierarchical folders, searched using the integrated search engine, or browsed by Tag.The application is implemented as a plugin system that allows users to add new features. More details

One of the DMS which is based on php is opendocman which is quite easy to setup and use with a very friendly user interface including auto-updates, revision tracking etc. More details on

There might be others too but which I have not covered personally because I haven’t used them in my career so please feel free to explore at your end but I tried to get the best ones for you.

Feel free for any comments or queries.
