| and the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform.  Bank PHB migrated to Red Hat's open

Lack of IT knowledge begets 'lock-in'

| We're more around the low-40 percentage mark right now. It's a goal--I think
| we'll get there. Asia contributes 17 percent of our revenues. We feel good
| about that, and it continues to grow nicely.
| In Asia, there is a real public policy benefit to using open source. A lot of
| software intellectual property (IP) resides in the United States, so paying
| for IP from outside the U.S. means dollars flowing out of other countries.
| Because open source is fundamentally cheaper, there is less dollar flow.
| And there is also knowledge transfer when countries embrace open source.
| That's why governments in the region are getting excited about open source.
