Maybe I'm asking another noob question.
But, wanted to know, how the big companies gain profit who run Free
and Open Source project like Mozilla, Apache, etc.
Of course, even if you are working for Free and Open source projects,
there has to be some income.
I'm hoping for the varieties of views on this.
PS: Apologize for the cross post. Do not include the other mailing

Is there any easy way to get the description of all packages listed in a
file which contains the names of all such packages?
sudo dpkg --get-selections >installed-software
to make a list of all installed software packages on my system
However I want to remove some of them in batch mode (from the command line)
instead of by using synaptic and deleting them one by one which is a
cumbersome process. So the description of such packages is needed in
another file containing a subset of names of packages likely to be removed.
How can this be done ?

Chamba project (http://www.chambaproject.in) is an ambitious effort to
create a Swathanthra (Free/Libre) Animation Movie by pooling in
contributions from people around the world and funding artists
directly. It is an initiative to experiment and explore a more
collaborative and open approach to film making, aiming to be
appealing, easy to be a part of and easy to contribute for hobbyists,
enthusiasts and professionals alike using FOSS tools, resources, and
the power of social networking.
A donation system will be setup at
http://www.chambaproject.in/contribute/ when we are ready to accept money.
You can add your name to the pledge at http://www.pledgebank.com/chambaproject
There are other ways you can help as well. See
http://www.chambaproject.in/contribute/ for different ways of helping
out. This is not just a movie project, it is a whole different way of
creating culture, some models of which we are already familiar like
Free Software, Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap, this time we are onto film
We need to reach out to maximum number of people and being a community
initiative we depend on you to help us promote this project. Did you
blog about this project? Did you share news about this project with
your friends, colleagues, facebook/orkut/twitter/identi.ca contacts?
Are you a good designer? Can you create good posters and banners for
this project? Make some nice ones and post it in the forum.
Think about more ideas to spread news about this project. The more
people talk about this project, the higher its impact.
You have to keep reminding your government that you don't get your
rights from them; you give them permission to rule, only so long as
they follow the rules: laws and constitution.
I propose to purchase a scanner and also use the same , among other things,
for reading Business cards of contacts to build a database.
1. Can I assume that using any scanner I can get pdf files and the same
can be OCRed ( using pdfocr script which uses Cnueiform )
2. Are there any scanners I should avoid
3. Any experience or Contra-indication against Canon LiDE 100 .
4. Any application that reads the business cards and intelligently (or
interactively) give parsed data from business card
5. Any recommendation for FOSS application for building a database for
contacts using scanner/OCR/manual effort

We see a lot of professionals and SMBs who are member of this list.
I was wondering if we all can form a sort of service network of
professional for various solutions using open/mixed source.
Any person/organisation with skills/knowledge on
FLOSS/Hweterogenous/Others can be a member.
We cannot ignore the "other"/"Proprietery" completely as they are
entrenched in the various verticals.
Please bear with me. I have dedicated last five years of my bread and
butter earning career to FLOSS solutions but have difficulty in
gaining traction in the enterprises working alone.
Of course there are commercials involved. Which can be discussed
threadbare. Perhaps another list for that.
I was having a "Single window Solutions" in mind wherein the
members/prospective customers can pick and choose services they want.
Modalities/details can be worked out.
Soliciting opinions from the esteemed members of this list.
