I think Linux's popularity in the developing world is very exciting. The increasing diversity of users and contributors from different cultures and socio-economic groups can only make the platform better for all of us.

2. The popularity of Linux among the developing countries makes me wonder if Linux is perceived as a poor man's equivalent of some proprietary OS (*cough* Windows).


Being a "poor man's equivalent" of something else is no problem as far as I'm concerned, especially in the beginning. Example: MS-DOS started out as a poor man's CP/M.
