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.

SPCP agreed through partner First Data Corp. to deploy Windows operating system and the productivity suite from Microsoft due to compatibility issues and unfamiliarity with open source software by students and faculty members, according to Microsoft Philippines.

SPCP has been using the Linux operating system for a school year.

The school, through Microsoft Philippines, has enlisted the help of First Datacorp (FDC), a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, to help deployment of the Microsoft software throughout the school.

Microsoft Philippines said the Windows Vista and Office 2007 licenses will be fully deployed in the upcoming school year.

SPCP has about 4,700 students from pre-school to high school and 300 faculty members.

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.
