I found some data for the G20 countries, GDP per capita and StatCounter provides usage of operating systems for browsing. Consider the data from yesterday for GNU/Linux and from 2013 for GDP…
2.81 Of course, it’s weak, and there are lots of deviation from the line but it’s hard to avoid that whether it’s a cause or effect, most are better off using more GNU/Linux, any IT that works rather than none/less.
Wealthier countries are using GNU/Linux to maximize the benefit of IT and poorer countries are using GNU/Linux to minimize cost/maximize coverage but GNU/Linux is the right way to do IT everywhere. India is that lowest point, yes, down there. It’s committed to using a lot more FLOSS and GNU/Linux. Within a few years, that should have some impact on GDP. They use GNU/Linux in education, business and government on desktop and server and plan to roll out GNU/Linux for most new acquisitions from here on in.
