Why Some Countries Are Adopting Open Source More Than Others

The CENATIC Foundation has a new report about how and why open source software is, or is not, being adopted globally.

Three factors impact whether a country adopts open source software:

  1. The government actively encourages and promotes the use of open source, as is the case in many European countries.
  2. High-level technical training
  3. The citizenry's access to the information society

For instance, in the cases of Brazil and India, CENATIC found a lot of open source software in use despite the population's poor access to the information society because Brazil and India have high levels of technical training.

Not surprisingly, the report found that "the United States, Australia and the Western European countries lead the development and adoption of open source software."
