Free Windows Based Operating Systems

Posted Posted by Gishan Chaturanga in Content     Comments 3 comments

Windows is Windows

There are appropriate number of Linux based operating systems under this sun. How about Windows? The answer is Windows is just Windows and nothing else or simply, no duplicates.

There are mainly two types of operating systems. One is Linux and the other one is Windows. Apple is also a successor of Linux kernel (Unix). Have you ever thought why there are thousands of Linux operating systems? Do people love this much sudo apt-get? The reason is nothing but because it is open source. Anyone can download the Linux source codes from the internet, do several modifications to the source code, put another fantastic name and publish it as a new operating system (under GPL license).  By the way Linux operating systems has few advantages with respect to Windows such as low hardware requirements and low cost. But still 95% of the client computers  are running on top of Windows. Reason is Windows is just great and unbeatable with its compatibility to a greater variety of popular application software and 3D games. On the other hand world’s leading software manufacturers target Windows and not *nix. When it comes to Windows 7 there’s no mistake to speak  about it’s user friendliness and smoothness. It is more reliable and highly polished. But the source code of Windows is one of the seven secrets on the world. So the thing happened to Linux will never happen to Windows. That means Windows NT kernel is really unique among other system software. Remember that the secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources!

RectOS Project

We can say RecOS is more likely a Windows based OS which is FREE. Below is their explanation about RectOS:

ReactOS® is a free, modern operating system based on the design of Windows® XP/2003. Written completely from scratch, it aims to follow the Windows-NT® architecture designed by Microsoft from the hardware level right through to the application level. This is not a Linux based system, and shares none of the Unix architecture.

The main goal of the ReactOS project is to provide an operating system which is binary compatible with Windows. This will allow your Windows applications and drivers to run as they would on your Windows system. Additionally, the look and feel of the Windows operating system is used, such that people accustomed to the familiar user interface of Windows® would find using ReactOS straightforward. The ultimate goal of ReactOS is to allow you to remove Windows® and install ReactOS without the end user noticing the change.

How To Type Sinhala Unicode Letters

Posted Posted by Gishan Chaturanga in Content     Comments 10 comments


Type in Sinhala, visit:

If you are not an expert in Sinhalese keyboard most probably you have to use a Singlish unicode converter which converts “mama wada” to “මම වැඩ”. There are number of Singlish to Sinhala unicode converters on the web such as real-time Unicode converter from UCSC. Later Google released Type in Sinhalese – Google Transliteration tool. Both were online tools. You need to have an online internet connection to use them (in some conditions you could use real-time Unicode converter offline too).

“Type In Sinhala app” for Facebook and web

Type In Sinhala

Facebook app:

This is a new software. It is more easy to use than any other software. It converts Singish style into Sinhala Unicode in realtime. Also it allow you to save your frequently used Sinhala Unicode phases in to your account and retrieve later when you have signed up with the software.

To access online writing software directly:

Option 2: Use Google Transliteration IME to type Sinhala letters

This is an 100% offline Windows based tool. Still in beta and not very reliable. This will convert the Singlish phrase into Sinhala Unicode. You can install it and use with most of the Windows application environments. Once you install the tool Windows language bar will appear on the task bar.

Download IME here:


Select SI Sinhala (Sri Lanka) from the language bar menu.


Then Google Transliteration IME toolbar will appear on your screen. Now click (point your cursor) where you need to type in Sinhalese. The main advantage is you can type in directly where you need to type in Sinhalese instead of typing in a separate program and then copying and pasting it to where necessary.


මෙය වින්ඩෝස් මෙහෙයුම් පද්දතිය තුල සිංහල වදන් හැසිරවීම සඳහා දැනට ඇති පහසුම ක්‍රමයයි.

If you are facing problems with Google Transliteration IME, you can still use Type In Sinhala tool,  Type in Sinhalese – Google Transliteration tool or  real-time Unicode converter from UCSC online without any installation.

  • …one of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one’s own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought
  • He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder
  • A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty
  • Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts (Sign hanging in Einstein’s office at Princeton)
