Ubuntu è una filosofia ed esiste anceh il contrario: Microsoft vuole a tutti modi impedire che il terzo mondo impari troppo open-source:
Nobody can pretend that the world has ever been absent any choice to run Microsoft software, or that Microsoft must work with OLPC to increase choice. Microsoft operating systems are the only option offered with the vast majority of desktop and server computers. By refusing to tolerate hardware that runs another OS by default, Microsoft is working to reduce choice.
Consider how good it might have been for the third world to have a computer infrastructure they could support on their own, without any capital and technological drain to the United States. That’s what they’ll be losing.
Figurati un futuro terzo mondo che non paga per le licenze e sviluppa i programmi da sé.
