Thumbs up Indian Courts started supporting Linux


Towards Speedy, Inexpensive, Transparent and Accountable Justice

Recently the Judicial Departments has taken steps towards the opensource softwares and they have started the operations for that they initially distributed around

10000 nos of laptops of hp along with the Redhat enterprise linux 5 along with the internet connection to their officers.

Supreme court of india started the E-committe which is taking all the initiation of this. Also started their centralization process by which all around the world the litigant public can access the information about their cases and necessary information. and to stop the deception by the others (like some bad advocates, mediators for now showing the case status).

So we welcome our government for taking this excellent step which will give the entire india some support. i.e when these people move around they have to discuss about the redhat linux (Linux) so some what support and information to others ( the general people, family of them ) which will provide some advertisement on linux also.

thank you all for this first step into the opensource softwares.

and using the public money in a good way rather purchasing the Licenses (propritary windows, every year renewals and etc.,)

Wish them good experience & Jai Linux

"and using the public money in a good way rather purchasing the Licenses (propritary windows, every year renewals and etc.,)" - why are they using RHEL? and not Fedora?

Because the courts are part of the government. They prefer to have support from the company rather than say that their support comes from the community - imagine the uproar if they were found to not have a known support company backing them.

How can we help this users any one has the idea,

I hear that no user is satisfied with the Linux as they are previously using Windows and without any knowledge now they need to operate the Linux.

How well we can help them.

Specially i have seen that they are unhappy that they are unable to play the songs or even unable to watch DVD or VCD.

This makes them not to use Redhat enterprise linux 5......

What makes the Redhat not to include the Multimedia movie player i.e it will not play the VCD or DVD in media player rather they should install other player separately.

how to overcome this problem as mpeg, mov are propritary or what

i agree with you teluguswan, i.e whenever the person enjoys the driving of his car then he will be good at that otherwise just they can go for the alternatives.

for that media player they need to download the xine rpm and install in their laptops almost everyone got this info
