Hamara was earlier based on Ubuntu but in the latest release we switched
to Debian Testing.

Accessible as in making the user feel comfortable while using the
distribution. The process of interacting with the system should be
intuitive and that's what we try to improve on with every release.

More importantly, we want to focus on localisation and making the
distribution available in all major Indian languages. This greatly
improves the 'accessibility' for the Indian users.

The complete project is a work in progress and the latest release has
been another step towards the eventual goal. Your help and feedback is
highly appreciated to make this distribution the most 'accessible' one
for Indian users.
