THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: And you thought only colas and crispies can be had
from a vending machine? How about one that has on its ‘menu’ such things
as ‘Ubuntu’ and ‘Fedora’? Well, that is just the kind of gizmo that you
may spot if you drop by the Park Centre at Technopark these days.
Named Freedom Toaster, this machine promises to set you ‘free’ from
proprietary software and paraphernalia such as licences. All you have to
do at the Toaster is to insert a CD in a slot and press the right
buttons. The Toaster will then ‘burn’ your choice on to the CD free.
(Curiously, it doesn't mention Canonical or The Shuttleworth Foundation)
