Recommended:Article on open source technologies, focus on Europe

While sorting through my Google alerts for OpenOffice.org, I came across this article written by Sandro Groganz that has some interesting numbers, and a discussion regarding open source adoption around the world. 

To nobody's surprise, Europe leads the world in open source adoption mainly to avoid vendor lock-in.  The article delves into this, looking at the different European societies and markets within Europe.

It is a good read for anyone following open source news (and software vendors in particular), but lays out a clear method to approach the market and cultural barriers in what appears to be the most profitable sector for open source technologies.
