MIT urges Brazil towards Linux

MIT urges Brazil towards Linux - ZDNet UK News: "MIT's Media Lab has recommended Brazil install open source software instead of proprietary software offered by Microsoft on thousands of computers that will be sold to the poor, according to a letter obtained by Reuters on Thursday.

'We advocate using high-quality free software as opposed to scaled-down versions of more costly proprietary software,' Walter Bender, director of the Media Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said in a letter to the Brazilian government. 'Free software is far better on the dimensions of cost, power and quality.'"

Once again the MIT copying my thesis. Oh well ...
