Blog action day 2008: Linux and PovertyFollow @ggarron
Today is Blog Action Day, and at Go2Linux we are supporting it by spreading the word, I think that Linux is a good way to fight against poverty, think about all the money that goes to software companies.
Lots of people in poor countries can not afford to pay for Microsoft of Mac software, but Linux is free, and work almost the same (do not want to start a debate about which is better), the most of time it is suitable for everybody's needs.
Also if you have the money to buy a expensive Operating System, but Linux can do the job for you why do not donate that money to the organization of your preference and switch to Linux?, Yes there are learning costs, but I still think they are less that buying an Operating System, Anti Virus, Anti spyware, etc.
That is our small contribution to this cause, and hope some of you might think about this.
