IN 1997, Niyam delivered his first talk on GnuLinux, at an Apple conference in Bangalore. Actively using GnuLinux since 2000, he delights in its ethics and vision, more than just its technology. For the moment, GnuLinux is his way of life.

Thousands and thousands of people have attended his seminars and workshops on GnuLinux. Hundreds of thousands have read his articles, a few even publish and distribute his copylefted articles further. His articles appear, often happily without his knowledge, in several countries across the world, even in Pakistan's press. Dozens of key clients, colleagues, and friends have migrated with his guidance.

The Government of India, UNDP, and other international organizations, often invite him to consultations. He regularly conducts several workshops on graphic design, digital sound, digital video, and more, based around GnuLinux tools. Interviews of him have been broadcast on several national TV channels, and leading newspapers and magazines often quote him. He is also actively involved in a few software projects in various capacities.

Niyam's focus on education is ushering in a quiet yet dramatic revolution in Indian academia with respect to GnuLinux.
