India’s open source future

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, nearly every corner of the world faces the challenge of a stagnant or
| shrinking economy. Bleak economic forecasts, shrinking budgets and increasing
| pressure on businesses and governments to meet the needs of their customers
| and constituents—often with less resources to do so—are becoming commonplace.
| While I’m not naïve enough to suggest a “one-size-fits-all” cure for these
| problems or that the solutions will be driven by only one industry or region,
| I do believe that, because technology and innovation drive global economic
| progress, the remedy for many of these challenges is in our hands.

| Businesses also benefit from the opportunities and efficiency enabled by open
| source innovations. Brazil, another of the so-called “emerging markets”,
| provides a strong example. In 2003, its president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva,
| spearheaded a countrywide movement towards open standards. It’s now estimated
| that at least 70% of Brazilian enterprises use open source software, many of
| which are experiencing cost savings attributable to open source solutions.
