AsiaBizTech: Linux Likely to Become Viable PC Operating System

“Prices of PCs are declining in Asia, which means that if the
Linux OS is more widely accepted, software costs can be driven
down, thereby making PCs even more widely available…”

“Thus, Linux is now eyed with much anticipation as a key to
further lowering the prices of PCs. If Linux can be used in place
of the Windows operating system, software costs essentially will be
zero, and customers will be able to purchase PC systems at far
lower prices.

“Linux is becoming more popular for desktop computers. But,
considerable efforts will still be necessary before it reaches a
mass consumption level. Industry observers are now making
projections about Linux’s penetration over the next two to three
years.”
