Tiruppur, Nov 22. The Textile Town of TamilNadu, Tiruppur witnessed Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex release by its IT Association – TITA. Members of Tiruppur IT Association were demonstrated Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex and its various features starting from Tamil Language support, Multimedia Capabilities, Office Suites, Package Management techniques, Wine etc.,

Ubuntu Tamil Team put forth the idea, that a one day Monthly Training program be organized for people who purchase computers through the Association Members, on Ubuntu by the Association itself. This will motivate people to switch over to Free Software with confidence.
