Re: [LUG] Linux v Microsoft


Depending on what the market is defined as, my immediate reaction is
pirated software (small bisniz, major competition, need to keep overheads
low, unfamiliarity with linux)

Conversely the Southern states (Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andra Pradesh and
Karnatka: assume a population of 50-100m each) are heavily in Linux for
education. I also read somewhere that the major banks - who cannot afford
piracy - are all into linux.
