It’s FOSS is a portal that aims to provide News, Reviews, Tips, Updates related to F.O.S.S i.e. Free & Open Source Software.
This FOSS domain consists of many products that you already use in your day-to-day computer life. Few examples are Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Linux, WordPress etc. This blog covers topics related to these technologies but mainly focuses on Linux.
If you wonder how come It’s FOSS is different from several other blogs in same arena, let me tell you one thing that all the tips, tricks and tutorials are tried and tested first by me on my Dell Inspiron N4010. I won’t suggest you to try anything which I haven’t tried myself.
