GNU/Linux Grows Well In Argentina

Statcounter shows steady growth of GNU/Linux page-views from Argentina, with a sharp increase in slope in 2013. Yes, we’ve seen this pattern before. A government announces a programme to distribute GNU/Linux to schools and it takes a few years to roll out. They plan to distribute 3 million GNU/Linux netbooks to students. They’ve developed their own distro based on Debian GNU/Linux too. Good for them. With 24 million users of the Internet there, 59% of the population, this surely will help bridge the digital divide.

Interestingly, the big spikes in daily shares in January are on weekends. GNU/Linux has escaped from the schools. It and ordinary folk in Argentina are free to make the most of their IT.
