Linux

This story reports on a trend that’s been observed in most of Africa, South America, and the rest of the developing world. Would you rather pay for a legitimate copy of Windows, use a bootlegged copy (of Windows) and risk dealing with the local BSA, or use a free and open source operating system like Linux? Smart businesses throughout the developing world are making the right choice.

A while ago, I was in an Internet café at a tiny mall here in Bohol for a quick check at my Email. The place has around 40-50 desktop computers with decent tech specs and with LCD monitors. I’ve been there before and have noticed that most of their machines ran in Windows, while a few ran in Mac OS X. Linux was nowhere to be found.

But today is different. I saw a monitor displaying brownish desktop wallpaper that made me smile. Yes, it’s definitely Ubuntu. I later found out that they have installed Ubuntu in about 10 of their PC’s.
