OK, Uruguay and Venezuela are not islands but they might as well be so, with a government that actually carries out its promises to use GNU/Linux widely. They are head and shoulders above their neighbours. Good for them. The rest? I guess the greedy monopolist thinks they are too small to warrant a local hit squad… head-count and all that. It’s all good.

GNU/Linux works for people. When they have a choice, they will take it. Go GNU/Linux!

    I think what we are seeing here is the spread of Intel “Compute Sticks” and “NUC boxen”. Small (nay, tiny), extremely low power consumption for the amount of computing power, and reasonably priced. They also run Linux (Ubuntu and Mint) really well. There also could be a fair amount of Raspberry Pi’s working their way into that market for the same reasons. Those ONLY run Linux.
