Technology at Work - Open Solutions

Jump to: navigation, search

Hello friends,

Thank you for the great discussion and wonderful contributions/comments you made. We must endeavor to use the available technology in the best way possible to yield maximum retains. ICT ACCESS through website, blogs, social networks, live chats, Internet voice and video calls, and more are available and for 'free'. Providing hardware alone does not bridge/close the 'gap'. Capacity building in terms of use and maintenance of equipment is key.

Other than using costly commercial and often pirated copies of software, use of free and open source solutions should be explored.

Though i would not necessarily promote one distribution over another, i strongly recommend Ubuntu. It comes with all the needed applications plus its has a great interface too. Its amazing how much you can do with it and for free. Yes! For FREE!!
