Maybe the supporters of Free and Open Source Software geeks might vote for the BJP this time around : Link
BJP announced its goal to become one of the most high-tech political parties in the next two years, and free and open source software (FOSS) will play an essential role in this project. BJP plans to use CentOS as its server operating system and Ubuntu on desktops.
Some of the innovative uses of Linux that probably appealed to the BJP :
-> You can come out with your own distribution of Ubuntu and call it Hubuntu.
->Mass mailing program for “We want POTA back”, integrated with an RSS reader subscribed to a news website which uses machine learning to detect a bomb blast in news items (which of course will be countered by Shivraj Patil’s own Muhahahaha “” spam mailer directed at the terrorists, which obviously will change its UI automatically 5 times daily !!).
-> You can hack into the kernel and make it crash if the user is away from his PC on Valentine’s day.
-> Integrating the POTA package into the kernel (I have no idea what I am talking about).
-> When you try to install Islamic software, prompts the message “You do not have enough sense or privilege to install this software. Please contact your local RSS leader”. NOTE : Do not confuse between RSS reader and RSS leader.
-> And lastly, but most importantly, the brightness levels of your monitor will be set to a very low value and you would not be able to change it till the elections. Their way of saying “India NOT shining”.
Wouldn’t it be totally cool see cyber warfare between our political parties someday !

P.S. : Of course, most of the above points have nothing to do with FOSS or Linux, but what the heck.
