Hi Shridhar,

 You are correct. GNU/Linux is functionally rich with lods of features
and functionalities.. It also supports most of the devices with
exceptional devices which hides its internals (like ipod, winmodems).

and note that, many use *Linux*.. instead of GNU/Linux.. please..
please change..
use GNU/Linux always.. iam not an exception since i too corrected
myself to use like that..  It creates respect to the GNU OS and makes
users to know what GNU is? .
