Platforms suitable for ICT4d projects

5 pts.

What are the fundamental guidelines to determine most suitable, sustainable platforms for ICT4d (ICT for development) projects. Projects are basically about bridging the digital divide by introducing ICT in remote, underdeveloped areas with the aim of empowering rural life conditions in less developed countries. United Nations based organizations / and other International organizations such as telecentre.org recommends non-proprietary open source technologies, however, I personally feel MS-Windows as an industry standard, due to sheer market dominance. Microsoft is also a donor partner for these projects. The most crucial aspect is the sustainability of these projects and the impact they make on uplifting living conditions, either directly or indirectly. For ex. 80% of 21 million people in Sri Lanka are not connected to the Digital Age.
