ICDL GCC Foundation raises public awareness

Filed under
Misc

ICDL GCC Foundation, the governing body and certification authority of the International Computer Driving License (ICDL) program in the Gulf States, has recently called on the general public to be aware of the choices available for operating systems and common productivity software as part of its digital literacy program.

The Foundation is making an effort to raise public awareness about the availability of choices of operating systems and office suites to help optimize digital skills independent of any vendor specifics.

The Foundation continuously supports affordable and easy access to information technology which has proved to be a very efficient method to spread the use of computers and further involve people in the digital society. And in line with this objective, the Foundation also encourages its candidates to be aware of the choice they have for operating systems such as Apple OS, Linux, Solaris and Windows; and choices for common productivity software such as Microsoft Office, Google's online Docs and Spreadsheet, Lotus SmartSuite, Apple iWork, Sun Microsystems StarOffice and its relevant Open Source Office which can be download for free from www.openoffice.org.
