Microsoftova Encarta ukinjena

Microsoftova Encarta ukinjena

ComputerWorld - Daljnega leta 1993 je Microsoft odkupil neekskluzivne pravice za Funk & Wagnalls Encyclopedia in njihovo vsebino vključil v prvo edicijo svoje enciklopedije, ki so jo poimenovali Encarta. Kasneje je Microsoft pokupil še nekaj enciklopedij, na primer Collier's Encyclopedia in New Merit Scholar's Encyclopedia, tako da se je baza člankov kar pridno debelila. Nekaj časa je Encarta predstavljala celo resno alternativo najstarejši enciklopediji, ki še izhaja, sloviti Encyclopædiji Britannici, a je v zadnjih letih njen blišč vse bolj bledel. Leta 2005 so poskusili angažirati uporabnike, tako da so na spletno verzijo enciklopedijo dodali možnost dodajanja vsebine, a jih to na pota stare slave ni pripeljalo.

Uporabniki so namreč vedno raje posegali po brezplačni in obsežnejši, še zlasti v posvetnih tematikah, Wikipediji. Microsoft je zato sklenil, da vzdrževanje tega projekta ni več smiselno. Na uradni strani so zapisali, da ljudje dandanes iščejo in rabijo informacije na povsem različne načine kot v preteklosti. To z drugimi besedami pomeni, da bodo Encarto v fizični obliki prenehali prodajati letos junija, spletna stran pa bo umrla 31. oktobra (razen japonske, ki bo harakiri storila 31. decembra). Kupci naročnine bodo dobili povrnjen denar za obdobje od 30. aprila dalje, čeprav bodo lahko stran obiskovali vse do konca. Tehnična podpora bo na voljo še tri leta.

Zanimivo bo videti, koliko časa bo še zdržala Britannica.

Slovar na Encarti se mi zdi precej v redu, tega bom najbrž kdaj pogrešal.

Pa ravno včeraj sem se vprašal, kako dolgo bosta ob čedalje bolj izpopolnjeni Wikipediji Encarta in Britannica še vztrajali ...

Ah to so bili časi, ko sem dobil Encarto zraven mojega prvega PC-ja :D Za tisti čas, je bila za mene kot mulec čisto huda zadeva.

Nisem vedel, da ima angleščina "uradni slovar".
