Linux Around the World

From the first use by Mahmut the Conqueror to guard his harems
in the mid-15th century to the modern use of Linux to create firewalls,
people have been using Unix not only to guard precious resources, but to
also run supercomputers, embedded systems, servers and last (but not
least) their desktop applications. This talk will delve into some of
the interesting uses and case studies of Linux use around the world and
why various countries are moving towards Free Software.
