Open Source For You (OSFY) (formerly Linux For You) is Asia's first publication about Linux and open-source software.[1]

OSFY has been identified as an important part of the FLOSS culture in India.[2]

Open Source for You's content ranges from introductory tutorials for new Linux users to programming for more advanced users. It includes reviews of utility tools, games and Linux distributions as well as industry news. The magazine features colour content and lists of major Linux user groups in India and has featured interviews with prominent local and international open source developers. For example, Klaus Knopper, Paul W. Frields (Fedora project leader) and Greg Kroah-Hartman have all been interviewed in the magazine in the past.[3]

The magazine is usually priced at 100 Indian rupees.[4]
