With governments and citizens both making good use of FLOSS and GNU/Linux it’s no wonder Europe has a lot of good scores for shares of page-views, well over 1%:
Without the leadership and sharing of information that exists amongst countries in Europe, I doubt this pattern would be any different than other regions. Instead governments all over the world attend trade shows and events sponsored by M$ and “partners”…
Where would Canada be on that list? Dead last, right next to Belgium and Poland and Cyprus. Countries that have for years preferred FLOSS are off-scale on that chart: Cuba, Venezuela, Uruguay, Ethiopia, Reunion… Governments do set a standard which influences all IT in a country. It’s about time Canada did more than just talk about FLOSS.
Well, those who have migrated to GNU/Linux and FLOSS have generally found it works for them or they would not have migrated. What’s wrong with the rest of them? Do they like throwing away tax-money? Do they like Patch Tuesdays, re-re-reboots and malware? I don’t know anyone who does unless their incomes depend on those things. The rest of us just want to create, find, store and present information fast and efficiently.
