Hi Ravi,

I feel the same applies here in Brazil. But I feel MS is way too
entwined in peoples mind, so a move to FOSS generally is a hard way.
With GIS I would say that big Corps (like the one I work to) are not
going to FOSS, mainly because money is not an issue.

Govs on the other side, have to be persuaded, and we are seeing a
slow, but seemingly steady movement in that direction.
