Hi,

Just forwarding an interesting article about Linux in Brasil. The article
doesn't really offer any new information but I find it interesting as it
offers a fair appraisal of 'free' ('as in operating system')

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/3445805.stm

I also enjoy the statement :
"The xenophobic mentality in Brazil actually is what drives people towards
open source software in some cases."

:)
