There are obvious errors in the article about free
software in the
malayalam text book of 8th Std IT@School Project. The errors may have
crept during the translation of the English text to Malayalam. But it
cannot be allowed to happen because if allowed to, it would convey a
wrong interpretation about free software amongst the
Thanks for pointing out. This is a major mistake. We will try to get it
corrected. I dont know if it has gone to press.
The authorities at IT@School are saying that they will
convert to more
free software. But I do not think it will ever happen. If one looks
at the text books for 8th Std, this becomes quite evident. One would
doubt whether it is a text book or some advertising supplement of
Microsoft and Intel. Wherever there is a picture of a microprocessor,
it is an Intel Pentium chip. The chapter on software packages shows a
logo of Windows XP. The chapter on wordprocessing shows a logo of
Microsoft Word 2000...
Should this be allowed ? This has to be fixed.....
I understand IT@School has decided to change this(because they also
felt, they are giving `free` Ads to Intel/MS). Again want support from
others. They would like get suggestions and alternative version.
