Probably going to see a lot more of this in third world countries. As you pointed, some open source applications may not be suitable for the corporate world, but then again not everybody can afford a copy of Photoshop.

Though I sort of would have expected the Russians and Chinese to come up with their own operating systems if they really wanted to be secure.
