Linux makes big gains in Asia

Slashdot has two recent posts on the gains made by the Linux computer operating system (OS) in China and India. Go penguin!

I generally feel that open source software is better than proprietary (or closed source) software. If open source is adopted widely, then in the long run there will be more innovation and more stable computing platforms, which is a good thing for our embattled world.

Of course, Microsoft is still a huge power in the world, but I think in twenty years they'll just be another computer has-been, like Atari.
