Yesterday, in a short video interview, Open-Source Technology in Emerging Markets, on The Wall Street Journal, Simon Phipps, Sun's chief open source officer, starts by defining open-source technology and describing its benefits. He then explains why Brazil and South Africa have been assuming a leadership role in open-source technology in government, education, and other areas, mainly for cost-saving reasons.

Quite a few enlightening points.
