    Hi dalek,
    Nice find. I think the so called "Third World" is a promising source of Linux growth. The article also mentions the MIT $100 lap top. I think Microsoft is involved with this project, but it seems to be a positive for me as far as Linux growth potential. Will people keep using Linux even when they become more affluent? No way to say for sure, but isn't there a tendency to stick with what we're familiar with?

    I'm not saying the Linux companies motive for being involved with the $100 lap top is financial gain for the future, but this may be a result.
    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
