"I think for linux to be promoted esp. here, firstly we should look forward to Microsoft's Piracy law becoming more serious ..since 90% computers in Uganda run pirated windows ...then it will be 90% running linux :) but also i think the biggest problem is attitude ...the first impression is so important that windows still rules because of the simplicity picture it painted since beginning ...if you look at susu 10.3 and above, its so simplified almost as windows ..am sure though time is coming when linux will rule ..if training institutes and schools can add linux as a default computers basics package ..that would help greatly!"

Do you agree that the biggest hindrance in the up take of Linux operating systems in Uganda is the attitude of Ugandans towards the system?
