Porquê usar Software Livre? Olhem para os números!

Após ler este artigo do Bruno, lembrei-me de um excelente estudo de David Wheeler sobre a utilização de Software Livre, trata-se Why Open Source Software / Free Software (OSS/FS, FLOSS, or FOSS)? Look at the Numbers!

Aproveito ainda para colocar aqui o link do artigo do Jon maddog Hall sobre o estudo que o Bruno faz referência.

Para além disso o Software Livre é muito mais SEXY!!! 😉

Microsoft admits that TCO for developing nation’s schools is same for Linux and Windows. – Linux Magazine Online

Microsoft admits that TCO for education students in developing nations is about the same with their products and Free Software. They further admit that the initial TCO costs of hardware and software are lower with Linux, and that Linux technical people in developing nations command a higher salary than their Microsoft counterparts due to scarcity.

I feel that this mandates greater use of Free Software in universities and high schools to help increase the number of locally employed, highly trained Free Software professionals to decrease that scarcity, and to lower the balance of trade problems that occur by sending software royalty money outside of the country.
