  1. Yes, Hindi does have it's own font type, but it's easier to type it that way. I believe, it's called Hinglish (Using english keyboard to type Hindi). Typing hindi takes a tad bit of time. There are lots of curves and lines (matraye as we call it in Hindi) so it's pretty time consuming.
  2. We have a similar app called Aarogya Setu here in India for contact tracing and self-assessment. It uses the Bluetooth and GPS location of the device to determine if the user has been near an infected person, and then alerts them. Earlier the source code of the app was not public, but after growing security and privacy concerns it was made public around last month. It also displays how many covid-19 infected persons are within a 1km, 3km, 5km... radius.

  4. Greatly appreciate your help guys, thank you! I think I will go with Linux mint. It looks a lot like windows, and I believe I will be able to adjust to it quite easily. Hopefully, I will be able to have it up and running during the weekend. Aloha! Have a great day!!
  5. Hello Laddles and Jellyspoons, I have an old pc that's been lying in the garage gathering dust. One of my friends told me I will be able to resurrect it if I install Linux on it. I have seen that there are many distros of linux, and I'm confused about which one should I install. I've never worked with linux before, and I just plan on to browse the web and edit documents at the most. Specs: Intel Pentium E6700 @ 3.20G 4 GB DDR 2 ram 320 Gb hdd Any help is much appreciated.

  6. The government has made it mandatory to download the app only for government workers and employees of private food delivery services. I have not downloaded the app, and I have not been arrested or fined. The government just wants to encourage everyone with a smartphone to download the 'Aarogya Setu' app; it has no power to make the use of the app compulsory without legislative consent. While the government initially claimed that the use of the app would be purely voluntary, it soon made it mandatory to download the app for government workers, but the use of the app for normal people is more or less voluntary. A coupe of days ago, I helped my mom configure the app. All it asks for is your age, gender, travel history, and symptoms. The app shows a message if you are in "moderate" or "high-risk" which is based on your proximity to a contacted person who has tested positive for the virus. You just have to keep your location sharing to 'always' and the app sends your location data to the government. Once the epidemic is over, the users can delete the app.
