Following a growing trend Brazil will be moving to open source software in the hopes of keeping their costs down. Some Brazilians are already using 86 Telecentro free computer centers in Sao Paulo and those systems use open source software prompting one user to say:
If this was a rich country, it wouldn’t matter and we could buy Microsoft products, but we’re a developing country and Linux is just a lot more accessible, so we’re heading toward a Linux generation.
Strange concept in our land dominated by Windows, it’s hard to imagine someone who has always used Linux and feels more at home with it when going to access the net for free. Some people here don’t even know they are using one kind of operating system, they only think it’s a computer, some people in Brazil will feel the same but with software that doesn’t come from the Evil Empire.
