There are a lot of pros and cons in using an open source software for instructional and educational materials. The pros are: it is cheap, easily accessible, and some of them can be customized the way you want it to be. However, on the other hand, the cons are: it can have a lot of bugs or code errors, some of the open source software have viruses or worms in them due to downloaded sources, other students might be misled by unverified and unfounded source of information.

As an experience, I have searched lifetime health software that can calculate your daily calorie intake. True to its sense, a came to a free software; it was able to calculate but the when I recalculated it for a second opinion- the calculation was all wrong. Thus, we must be careful in choosing a software especially if they are open source.

After year of the implementation of the open source our school is still not ready neither mentioning to proceed with the open source. Actually even the MS office application and its web development package is still new to us.

I may said we are a little bit backward yet I believe that this thing happen because the inbound contact centre of this giant IT company is regularly topping our senior school's officers.

Businesses and universities are hiring people with Linux skills, deploying Linux on servers to save money, and even evaluating Linux on the desktop. Microsoft's pariuri sportive pricing and security policies have made Linux an attractive alternative. Linux's open source nature makes it an excellent tool for teaching. Linux now comes with free bets alternatives to Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office which work well enough for the average user. University IT departments should start planning to support Linux on the desktop in recognition of its increased importance.

Open source should be used until a certain point. Teacher's role should not be substituted and this should be very clear. I think we have combined the two sides
