A great news for all Indians. Microsoft will offer versions of Windows XP Starter Edition in 9 Indian languages besides English in India.
The Indian language versions of the Windows XP Starter Edition are among a number of new initiatives by Microsoft to support India's efforts to bridge the digital divide, the company said.
In June, Microsoft rolled out its Windows XP Starter Edition in India. The software is a low cost, stripped-down version of Windows XP for emerging economies like India.
Although it is under considerable pressure from organizations supporting open source software, the Indian federal government as well as state governments have declined to take a decision favoring either open source or proprietary software in education and e-governance projects.
