"The Linux rush is on--and headed to Latin America, where one local company intends to seize the opportunity to give their favorite Open Source operating system (OS) a big lead in the emerging business computing and IT markets...."

"BCM anticipates great things for Linux's expansion in the region. "Concerning Linux, BCM considers this OS to be a major industry trend and a viable alternative for our Latin markets," Barousse said. "It's a low-cost solution, extremely reliable, scalable and totally customizable to customer or regional needs."

"Based on this expectation, BCM intends to give Linux a head start in this new marketplace. "Mexico and Latin America are emerging markets for the majority of the hardware and the application software companies, since the markets are quite new," Barousse said. "It is an excellent opportunity for Linux to get into the mainstream and become the number one option for local companies."

"That head start, coupled with Open Source's flexibility, gives Linux a big advantage, Barousse explained. "Due to the nature of Open Source technology, it is incredibly adequate for local engineers, scientists and research groups to adopt and further develop the technology and adapt it for local needs," he said, allowing Linux to "provide even better solutions, extending the market far quicker than proprietary solutions can."
