"Recognizing increasing marketplace demands for the open-sourced Linux operating system, Taiwan's long-established information technology (IT) sectors, including the island's emergent software industry, are gearing up to support Linux users worldwide."

"Dozens of Taiwan's leading technology firms showed off their Linux-based products at the recent Linux World Expo, which ran from September 7-9 at the Taipei International Convention Center."

"Already the world's third largest IT manufacturer, Taiwan's aggressive reception of Linux validates the island's propensity for early mass adoption of new technologies. Taiwan IT firms showed similar forethought by embracing the universal serial bus (USB) system when that was first introduced."

"Hardware on display at Linux World ranged from leading-edge servers to the latest scaled-down Internet appliances (IAs), the inexpensive computing devices designed solely for Internet access, while Taiwan software developers presented an array of Linux platform solutions."
