LXer: Open source: The future of IT in Nigeria

Published at LXer:

At Leapsoft Technologies, we see the future of IT in Nigeria as that of affordable software powering the Nation. Nigeria has long suffered from expensive proprietary software plaguing our government, education and private sectors with each of these bodies writing out huge cheques annually or even more frequently in licensing fees. Some of these fees could be saved and better spent on improving education in our schools, improving the healthcare system or providing electricity and water to other parts of Nigeria that do not already have these utilities by adopting open source software that is a fraction of the cost of proprietary software.
