"Open-source operating system Linux is fast gaining foothold in a range of computer industry areas from server to small handheld computers to smart home appliances, an industry group said."

"Korea Linux Council (KLC) said yesterday that the Korean market for Linux applications jumped from 5 billion won in 1999 to 100 billion won last year." [ Ed. Note: from approximately 3,940,000 USD to approximately 79,000,000 USD ]

"The data is based on revenues of its member companies, thus the actual volume will be larger, the group said. The number of Linux players skyrocketed given the council's members increased from around 50 in 1999 to 150."
