Bringing Linux to Nicaragua
"An interesting thing that I've learned during this operation thus far is most businesses and individuals aren't yet tied into any specific application package. In the US, many people seem to say, "I can't get MS Office for free? I don't want it." Down here, they tend to ask, "How do I word process? How do I print things?" This means they're much more willing to switch to Linux, as long as it allows them to do what they need to do. Most of the computer usage down here consists of word processing, spreadsheets and presentations, all of which Linux does wonderfully."
