This weekend after Finishing the work on Thursday, and some drinks :) , We went for a Trip to Al Ain. My friends Thomas sen, Sanoj, Jishnu and Sananth are on the team. Jishnu has the perfect car for the drive.

It was an overnight trip. We reached there at around 1.30 am midnight, went for a sight seeing to the to top of the Jabal Hafeet mountain. It was amazing the view at night. After the views in mountain we came to the beautiful park, botton and lived there that night, It was about 4.30 am we finished the setup (Food, tents etc) and went for a sleep.

Morning it was perfect for the sight seeing. It was very beautiful place in the desert. We captured some photos. We went to Al Ain Zoo after that.

Here is the photos from the Trip.

We all enjoyed the trip. I remember the last time from the office we all Flip Tech team went for the Trip to Al Ain.

Recent days I was encountered with some fundamental questions and criticism on concepts of open source, and energy behind Linux operating system. The answers are already explained by the experts in many ways through different mediums. I like to share these two good documentaries made about Linux on this occasion

You can see a lot more videos of linux by doing a Google search – How Linux powers some of the hollywood films studios, high end mission critical servers and supper computers, almost any type of microprocessor based electronic devices etc. Linux is nothing but the open knowledge of a “Computer system”, and how it works.


UAE Linux user meetup (@uaelug on twitter), was very interesting yesterday. About 20 Linux Enthusiasts were present on the meetup. It was an open discussion session after an Ubuntu linux installation workshop for newbies. Some interesting talks with new linux users and experts gave lot of amazing information about linux.

Meetup started with number of new guys introducing themselves. It was fun and some “jokes are thrown on the table” . @tarekkassar was live tweeting from the meetup. ” If you love open-source, join #uaelug, all people here will be your friends ” – he said on twitter.

After the meetup it was very clear to everyone that why we use linux and what is the importance of this Operating system. Some topics we discussed was about how you use a computer in its maximum possible ways, that cannot be achieved using propitiatory systems. It explained how to make computer to do more stuff than, just following some ready made “products”. Experts explained how we take challenges and do understand how software really works.
