For most of my adult life El Salvador has been in the news as a troubled place surrounded by violence and oppression. There are positive signs like this one:
Despite hundreds of years of Spanish, USAian imperialism and tyrants the country is taking reasonable shape including modernization of IT. Android/Linux is thriving as it is the quickest and least expensive means of bringing Internet-connectivity to the ordinary people. GNU/Linux is part of the strategy of opening the government to increase democratic participation. This is a global movement. The El Savadorans are sharing information with other countries such as Uruguay.
The government of El Salvador has provided infrastructure for GNU/Linux distros in the country. India has set up training programmes for students in Cuba and El Salvador.
