    Apparently, Dynamic and rapidly growing companies with very productive employees choose propriety and the bid monolithic companies tend towards OSS, so the less the productivity of their employees the more chance they would be using OSS.

    Thats what you would expect; but it turns out these really large corps (who have the tech ability) would tend towards OSS due to lower cost and higher operating efficiency.

    This is topical:

    Icelandic Government Moves Towards Open Source - Tech Europe - WSJ

    http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/business...push-40154870/

    This is an intriguing quote:
    Iceland's open source efforts are based partly on the UK government's own open-source strategy, he acknowledged.

    "Our policy was based on the UK policy, the only thing we added to it was that students should have the opportunity to learn about [open source]", he said.

    They also like to upload stuff to their SkyDrives at the slightest opportunity.

    Even our banks have made it to Windows 7, its only the real hold outs and back water excrement houses like Vodafone that are useing XP now. We are also mostly hp or apple on TV mainly as they are the only ones that bother shipping anything remotely current down here.

    IIRC Lloyds TSB only moved to Windows XP a few years ago, from Windows 2000. So, this isn't exactly surprising really.

    My colleague here used to do roaming support in a previous job and he saw Windows 3.1 machines still in use only half a dozen years ago...
