This shows that competition is alive and well in Belize. This model is more like a “1/N” model where consumers have N choices and take them. Of course, some choose “8” but */Linux is not shut out as in many regions. “8” may have more salesmen but */Linux has a long history in Belize. Years ago, Caribbean countries began to cooperate and study successful innovations in IT in Europe, Asia, and other regions. They are working hard to diversify away from dependence on tourism, tropical food exports and natural resources. It will take a lot of education and encouragement to make rapid progress but of course they can skip some of the mistakes made by those who slave for Wintel instead of working for themselves.
