IndLinux - Indian GNU/Linux project has done an amazing job. The
screenshots are.. man impressive... :)
I must admist they look nifty.
Our patch for GNU/Linux Kernel 2.2.17 (old :) )is presently
available in the above.
Similarly Solutions for X-Window is also available.
Both soluction are NOT depend any Encoding and Font solution. i.e
User can use any type of encoding (ISCII, Unicode, TSCII,...) and
I took a look at the site, and it is an answer to the problem, but I
wouldn't think of it as a /solution/. IMHO, a solution must be based on
standards, which will make it implementable (are the patches accepted into
the X tree? kernel tree?).
At some stage we need to have a standard for Indian languages, and adhere to
it. There must be some convergence on this, say encodings for instance. Which
might be right forum to bring this up? I know that the DOE has set ISCII as
its standard, and I think it is the right direction to proceed in. Opinions?
We will find a way, or we will make one - Hannibal
