Poor countries saving money by using Linux

Nadeem M Qureshi covers the benefit of Linux for poorer countries in an article on the Frontier Post.
I don't blame them, it makes total financial and technical sense. Linux has so much to offer, with little or no cost. There really isn't any proprietary software that can come close to it in terms of value versus cost.

Hi,

The distribution may be free but the support for the organization will cost depending on the extent of the use & number of units supported.
