A Tokyo trip report

A Tokyo trip report

Parent article: A Tokyo trip report

I once wrote to LWN with a request to write reports about how Linux is used "out there" where we, the Anglo-Saxon/US&Europe crowd, never look.

Linux appears to be really big in Brazil, but software developers in China and India must be using Linux for /something/, yet I have never noted any major Linux application making its way back to the Anglo-Saxon sphere of the world. What applications do they use? What drives acceptance of the platform? What are the main problems for users in Asia?

So here's that request again. Jonathan, it would be nice to read more about this. Maybe LWN can commission reports about this from Linux developers "out there"?

Thanks!

...to read reports...

(I didn't request to write one for them, for sure.)

Well for China I don't know, but Ruby comes from Japan and I think that Lua comes from Brazil.
