The goal of the KhmerOS project is to produce the basic computer technology necessary for Cambodia to enter the age of technology. The requirements for this technology are clear: It must be in Khmer (Cambodian) language, sustainable, and well adapted to the socio-economic situation of the country. Cambodia not being a profitable market for software companies, the only option left to undertake this effort is to base it on free and open source software (FOSS), which allows translation, adaptation and free distribution of the software.

Below is my original post at KhmerOS website:


KhmerOS would like to announce that Khmer Software and openSUSE CDs are now available on the Cambodian market. You can find the CDs at the following places in Phnom Penh:

  • Toul Tom Pong Market
  • Around Santho Mok High School
  • Around National University of Management (NUM)
  • Around Yokuntho High School
  • Along Wat Langka Gate
  • Central Market


The market will sell the CDs for the following prices:

  • $1.5 for Khmer Software CD
  • $3.5 for openSUSE 10.2 CDs (7 CDs)

To encourage the sellers, for those who want to get the CDs from KhmerOS office (Open Institute), we will sell the CDs for $0.5 more than the market price.

Linux Instant Messenger

Kenno’s post about Pidgin reminds me about Kopete, my favorite instant messenger in Linux.

Sometimes ago, I wrote an article about communication via Kopete using Khmer Unicode. Sometimes it was really difficult to communicate in English if you are Cambodian. We can’t just find an equivalent English words of what you want to say in your native language. Most Cambodian chatters use language transliteration during their chatting.

Yap Man! – This is the English transliteration of the word “យ៉ាប់​មែន” (sorry, Khmer Unicode is required here to avoid the square boxes) in Khmer. I can’t find any English word equivalent to this Khmer word. One of my colleagues suggested “Bullshit” but I don’t think so.
