    well GNU/Linux is pretty much known to average computer users in India.states like Kerala where the penetration is high!
    ubuntu is by far the most popular distro followed by fedora and opensuse.

    Well, here we go!!!

    I have suggested and succesfully convinced 2 of my freinds to shift to Linux, dumping windows!!!

    They were too frustrated due to the viruses on windows!!!

    Thats a lead, isnt it???

    [joke] I think the spellings need fixing [/joke]

    Anyway, I don't think that its making much of a dent, at least where I live (Jabalpur, M.P.)

    Because of the high level of piracy here, everyone I know is running a pirated copy of Windows, and most of them don't even know that they're doing something illegal.

    I've tried converting a lot of people, been successful with getting more than half of them to run one of Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu or Mint. Almost all of them, though, are still dual booting after more than a year of using Ubuntu.

    Some people are dual booting for games, some are dual booting for programming environments that are taught in school/college, and which are limited to Windows (like Visual Basic). I even know one guy who is dual booting because iTunes makes the task of managing everything in his iPod very easy compared to gtkpod, amarok and rhythmbox. gtkpod is not really as easy as iTunes for managing the iPod, and amarok and rhythmbox cannot do videos.

    Then again, there's one guy I know who dual boots Windows with Kubuntu because he likes amarok and amarok is not available for Windows.

    I voted for "It has brought down M$ to a greater extent"

    It has brought down M$ to a greater extent

    In fact, in Channai, a lot of government departments including TNEB, Port Trust etc are using linux for backend services, and have replaced most MS frontends.

    But India is a "consumption-oriented" linux implementer. I don't see many contributions to Linux by Indians living in India.

    This should change.
