WordPress is a Open Source Content Management System (C.M.S) that provides a simple web application platform for web hosting.
If you a Linux geek you can download it and tweak it to satisfy your needs but the open license prevents you from developing new themes other than what is already agreed and known as the standard.
It probably developed from Ubuntu Turnkey applications and has a significant market share of web hosting for smaller companies.
My intention here is to let you know that there is http://www.wordpress.org that gives you a blog space like here in Google’s blogspot that can be your personal web site before you mature into a Web Wizard.
Other reason for me tohighlight it here is that it has support for Sinhala fonts and Tamil fonts for your web writings.
Do not wait till Government provides you with necessary infrastructure in IT including fonts, go and become a Web Star (not a Mega Star) by learning the basics with WordPress.
It is easy as a word processing program and you will ascend to greater heights once you master the Codes.
A glossary of the Codecs are published elsewhere free for access.
It is free but once you are mature you can pay a nominal fee and upgrade your blog site which for me is almost a complimentary website without annoying advertisements that hide your creativity.
I downloadedWordPress some months ago but failed to write something about it since I was obsessed with Linux 100 Live CDs.
Now I am quietly delving into inner strengths of Linux and Open Source talking about WordPress is appropriate here.
Theomission was a serious lapse on my part and my apologies for that.
WordPress is as important as Dropbox for new wave of web activity with cloud computing on the horizon.
