About NepaLinux
NepaLinux 1.1

NepaLinux 1.1 is a relatively bug-free and revised version of the previous beta release. In the new release, considerable attention and care has been given inorder to fix the bugs and technical difficulties that prevailed in the earlier release. Hence the development of NepaLinux 1.1 has been greatly guided by the feedbacks and suggestions put forward by the end-users.

More News

Attempts have been maximized to make NepaLinux 1.1 as much user-friendly, bug-free and as less technical as possible. However, stability and completeness can only be achieved with further works leading to a few more releases of NepaLinux. In this regard, it is being planned to release NepaLinux 2.0 and NepaLinux 3.0 respectively in the year 2007 and 2008.

Establishing NepaLinux in Nepal and among the Nepali speaking population elsewhere cannot be achieved solely by the efforts of Madan Puraskar Pustakalaya in isolation. The awareness on the essence and vitality of Free Open Source Software and localized applications like NepaLinux in the context of a poor country like Nepal having a relatively small English proficient population is yet to be reached to the general masses. The role of Free Open Source Software (FOSS) community, civil society, government and others will be very significant for creating the required awareness. Madan Puraskar Pustakalaya would like to kindly appeal all of the above institutions to play a constructive role in promoting NepaLinux thus joining hands in the divine objectives of bridging the digital divide existing in Nepal between the "haves" and "have-nots", between "English proficients" and "English non proficients".
