Open season for open source software in region

,----[ Quote ]
| Also, it must be noted that as Linux adoption in the region is low - and the
| same can be said for the number of skilled technicians - the value in terms
| of trained staff and the opportunity to garner extra revenue from knowledge
| transfer is high.
|
| This also means that systems integrators can develop continued revenue from
| service contracts as it seems only the very largest enterprises are likely to
| invest in training their own staff on Linux.

Ubuntu Arabic Team

,----[ Quote ]
| We have been working on Ubuntu Arabic silently to merge all of the scattered
| Ubuntu related efforts in Arabia to establish one solid good team and I guess
| we just did it and we just reached phase zero. (Yes, we were working in minus
| degree).
|
| First, we merged with ubuntu-alarabi.net and now waiting to hear from
| arabuntu.org, we are so excited and we want to put all possible efforts on
| this team.

| working days."

| Microsoft/ECMA rolls over cultural diversity. Does someone wants to call Al
