I have often said that emerging markets are not locked in to Wintel. Here’s another example:
- According to IDC Myanmar (aka Burma) spent just 5% of its IT budget on software.
- Here’s a retailer selling tons of GNU/Linux PCs.
There is a connection between the two items. FLOSS costs much less than Wintel’s stuff. Look at some of those prices…
- Intel Core i5-2410M Boot-Up Linux 4GB DDR3 640GB SATA $690
- Intel Core i5-460M P6100, 2.00Ghz, 3MB L3 Cache Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 2GB DDR3 SDRAM $823
