Myanmar Emerges from the Dark Ages of IT

I have often said that emerging markets are not locked in to Wintel. Here’s another example:

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

There’s no nonsense about recommending that other OS. They offer variety of OS, features and price. It’s no wonder there are far more job ads for GNU/Linux (49,500) than that other OS (2,850)…

    What about the dark ages in general? Human rights had prevailed 😀
