MAKATI City, Philippines — Local school St. Paul College Pasig (SPCP) has recently decided to replace its existing open source system to standardize on Windows Vista and the latest Microsoft Office system, Microsoft Philippines said.
Microsoft Philippines said the Windows Vista and Office 2007 licenses will be fully deployed in the upcoming school year.
In a statement, Sr. Teresita Baricaua, SPC, SPCP directress, said students and the faculty were looking for programs and applications that were not available in Linux. Students, she said, were often using Windows in their home, thus the confusion in the use of applications.
