Group Description

When the invention of the Simputer (Simple Computer) was announced in 2001, it instantly captured the imagination of the world. So much so, that the venerable New York Times called it the most important invention of 2001 ahead of Apples G4 and Microsofts Windows XP operating system. Not only was the vision behind the Simputer stunningly ambitious (to bring computing to the gigabyte-less masses, as the London Guardian put it), but here was a computer that was rewriting every rule associated with computers. The goal of the Simputer project is to harness the potential of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for the benefit of the weakest sections of society. The software developed by the Simputer Trust will be under GNU GPL and the hardware developed will be under Simputer General Public License (SGPL). This mailing list will hopefully be a platform for a wide range of discussions relating to the Simputer and also bring together diverse people interested in the common goal. Please see
for more information. This list is now moderated by Frederick Noronha, to keep away spam and encourage Simputer-related debate... with all points of view allowed.
