Our Desktop Environment
IBM compatible PC is the primary desktop computing platform in EdUHK. OCIO is responsible for the design of all PC for office use as well as PC available in central computer rooms and general classrooms. In the current setup, the most common software (e.g., MS Office, MS Outlook & Internet Browser) are installed locally on the PC to allow you to continue working even without logging into the network. Anti-virus software is also installed on each office PC provided by OCIO to combat against computer virus.
Besides the common software, we also make available some special software (e.g. SPSS, PDF-XChange Pro) on the network to cater for different needs. Users are required to login the network in order to get access to these software.
