See StatCounterFor the past 30 days in both Uruguay and Venezuela, GNU/Linux share of page-views from the desktop have exceeded that of Lose 8.1 sometimes for three consecutive days. The average for that period was 13.55% Lose 8.1 versus 13.05% GNU/Linux in Uruguay. If you exclude weekends, GNU/Linux was ahead by 0.1%. Not bad for an OS with so few salesmen compared to the OS of a monopolist with $billions invested in excluding competition. The rest of the world hovers around a mere 2% share so the death of the monopoly is happening now. In the next few years more countries will chip away at the monopoly as is happening in North America and Europe and India and the world will be free. All it takes is will to be free. We have it. We will exercise it.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. I do not care whether my solution is the same as yours. I like to think for myself.
My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. I have been blessed by working in schools where students and school systems have benefited by good, modular software easily installed in most systems.
I have shown GNU/Linux to thousands of students and hundreds of teachers over the years and will continue in some way doing that until I die in spite of the opposition.
