No only that, it is also small in size. So people using cyber cafe can download and use it at once to participate in forum discussions. As there is no installation hassle, there is no need to have Admin access in computer to use this Bangla software.

Hope it will be beneficial to our official partner- Banglacricket.com :)

Sorry to say, no. We couldn't find enough Linux users in Bangla community, so we may not invest at this moment for the development of Linux version of Avro.

This is bad news for me!

I will try to add a web-based Bangla typing feature to the forums. That way it would be OS-independent. You won't need to port anything around even. Just log on to a website and type Bangla.

:( I'm yet to learn the bangla keyboard to type out in Linux (or even Windows). Thanks to OmicronLab, I really like Avro. The phonetic transcription is so easy to use and helpful

That'd be great.

Anyway, the purpose of the Avro Keyboard portable edition is not to beat the web based typing systems. It will just let Avro Keyboard users not to learn every typing scheme available, learning Avro will meet all the needs, anywhere. You know, already there are a lot of web based typing solution made by bnwebtools, somewhereinblog, bdjobs, Deepayan Sarkar, Bn Wikipedia, projonmo forum... and there are slight or major difference in them...Same people visiting their site, is it possible for a man to memorize all these systems?

One possible solution for you can be Bnwebtools which have a major options for scheme variations (some of them are still in alpha or beta stage), but that may or may not be free for Banglacricket (free for personal use only), you can contact the author for permission. I know that Somewhereinblog.net is using it for online Bijoy Unicode typing system.
