Why IT is so import to modern word?

Why IT is so import to modern word?

People in the past wasn’t needed IT immensely since their life was very simply but with the passage of time IT had been a complicative life. Thus life being complicative their main feature was calculation for that reason they invented the abacus in 3000BC.

Thus time passed and calculation with abacus was also not fast enough,
 and also abacus was improved up to microprocessor in to computer.

With those of things their purpose was that to make their activities easier. Nowadays the world is going to be very tiny in front of the IT, So it is the most important thing that we all have to learn and understand the term and application
of it and also, if it wasn’t for computer, there would still be a lot of obstacles to receive information.
And also,
In this era of modern technology, no civilized country can lead a solitary existence. Modern information technology has linked all countries together. The whole community has to think as a single family as the world becoming smaller and smaller due to the vast strides made in modern information technology.
Before information technology was developed it took moths to spread information throughout the world but now information
can be relayed to any corner of the world within seconds.

This means that IT is a vital factor to communicate information among other countries.
Modern world is very competitive one so IT has become an essential factor.

What is an Operating System

What is an Operating System?
An operating system is the most important software that runs on a computer. It manages the computer's memory, processes, and all of its software and hardware. It also allows you to communicate with the computer without knowing how to speak the computer's "language." Without an operating system, a computer is useless.
What is the purpose of an operating system?

An operating system is the framework that allows you to communicate with computer hardware in an interactive way. Without this, you would not be able to tell the computer to do anything and it would have any instructions to follow. This is why it is important for a computer to have an operating system. In early days without OS so much problems where faced like accessing or getting output it takes two days. To make it much more efficient OS is used.

Microsoft Office 2013 Released to Manufacturers

Microsoft this week reached another Windows 8-related milestone. The company's updated productivity suite, Office 2013, has now been released to manufacturers.
"This milestone means the coding and testing phase of the project is complete and we are now focused on releasing the new Office via multiple distribution channels to our consumer and business customers," Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Office division, wrote in a blog post.
General availability is set for the first quarter of 2013, but those who purchase Office 2010 from local retailers starting Oct. 19 will get the Office 2013 upgrade for free once it's released. A preview version of the Office 2013 software, meanwhile, will be available on the Windows RT devices making their debut with Windows 8 on Oct. 26. For more on that, see Hands On: Microsoft Office 2013 on Samsung's Windows RT Tablet.
Certain business customers will get early access so they can start testing it out within their organizations, Koenigsbauer said.
Office 365 Enterprise customers will gain early access to Office 2013 with Microsoft's next service update, which is expected in November. Volume Licensing customers with Software Assurance, meanwhile, will be able to download Office 2013 apps and other Office products like SharePoint 2013, Lync 2013, and Exchange 2013 via the Volume Licensing Service Center by mid-November. They will be added to the Volume Licensing price list on Dec. 1. IT professionals and developers will gain access on TechNet or MSDN subscriptions by mid-November.
A pre-release version of Office 2013 is currently available on Microsoft's website.
Earlier today, Microsoft started taking pre-orders for Windows 8.

What is open source software?

1              What is open source software?
The definition of open source
For OSS Watch, open source software is software that has been released under an Open Source Initiative (OSI) certified licence. OSS Watch uses this OSI-approved list as a means of avoiding debates over interpretation of the open source definition and which licences do or do not conform to it. By recognising the OSI as the appropriate final authority in this issue, much confusion is avoided.
Each of the licences approved by the OSI meets the conditions of the Open Source Definition. That definition includes 10 criteria. Perhaps the most important of these are the free redistribution of the software, access to the source code, and the permission to allow modifications to the software and derived works that may be distributed under the same licensing conditions.
Very different styles of licence meet these criteria. The GNU General Public License, commonly known as the GPL, meets the criteria. The MIT licence, which is very different in length and intent from the GPL, also meets the criteria. Indeed, around 70 licences have gone through the approval process. To help with navigating through these licences OSS Watch has produced a series of documents that describe some of the key licences in plain English.
For an individual or project looking to license their code, using an OSI-approved licence can simplify the process. In fact, many people (including OSS Watch) do not consider software to be open source unless it is released under an OSI approved licence. For potential contributors and users who wish to work with open source, it provides a quick way to check that the code is indeed open and accepted by a large community.

Is open source ‘only’ a licence?
The expression open source has wide application. For the OSI it also refers to the distinctive software development methodology employed by many open source software projects. The OSI home page starts with ‘Open source is a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process.’ However, the OSI stops short of defining this methodology in the Open Source Definition, which concerns itself only with the requirements of a licence designed to protect this way of developing software.
The open development methodology is based on principles that may not be among the principles of software development normally taught in academia. Open source software, strictly speaking, may or may not be developed using an open development methodology. The choice of which development methodology to adopt is dependent upon a project’s chosen route to sustainability.

Does open source mean anything else?
The term ‘open source’ originated in the worlds of journalism and intelligence, and referred to a publicly available source of information. This former use was known to the founders of the Open Source Initiative, and was felt to be ‘a feature, not a bug.’
Sometimes open source is conflated with open content or free content. Open content refers to content that can be edited, changed and added to by any reader. A good example is the famous Wikipedia, an online open content encyclopaedia. Open source is used today in various contexts which take it far beyond its application in software. However, to re-state, for OSS Watch open source software always refers to software released under an OSI-certified licence.

Is open source software the same as ‘free software’?
Free software is an expression used by the Free Software Foundation. The term ‘free software’ pre-dates open source software, and focuses on several kinds of freedom that are associated with the software, thereby taking a more ethical viewpoint on the matter. For some, it is the preferable term and they do not wish to associate themselves with the term open source. Free software must not be confused with ‘freeware’, which is software that can be acquired at no cost but for which source code may well not be available.
When we at OSS Watch use the term open source software without a more specific qualification, this will usually include both Free and Open source software. A common abbreviation for this collection of software is FOSS.
