Godse writes. "A good way to seed Linux is to start programmes in
colleges to distribute Linux and train the students on this
"But Godse revealed to LinuxNews.com that Linux's impact spreads
much further than the education arena. "Linux could greatly impact
the small and medium size businesses by enabling them to use the
full power of all the free software available on Linux," Godse
says. "A comparative Windows solution would be way outside their
budget." Linux enables smaller businesses to access Web servers,
mail servers, and other technologies that might otherwise be well
outside their price range, Godse adds."
"Atul Chitnis, of the Linux user group (LUG) association Linux
India, agrees. "Linux enables people to develop on low-cost
platforms for eventual deployment under a `big' UNIX system," he
writes on the Linux-India.org site. "In India, where costs and
rapid obsolescence of hardware can play havoc with a company's
finances, this makes for an attractive proposition."
