No. If you look at the number of internet users in Africa then South Africa has less than half the number of internet users of African countries like Egypt, Nigeria or Morocco. If you look at our internet penetration (percentage of population) then we are so much worse off. In 1994 SA had the most internet users on the continent.Is 2012 going to be the year of true broadband?
And that's who we should be blaming. Not that it would change anythingSure we can! Telkom's Monopoly has not decreased at all in the last 16 years, and they still enjoy maximum government protection.
And the goverment goes and pick the lowest definition of broadband and once more the country swims in a sea of mediocrity.Bah!!It ultimately comes down to the reality that broadband in South Africa is defined as 256 kbps.
The year of the Linux desktop will probably never happen. Instead, Linux has already taken over in mobile devices. And I think mobile devices will make the desktop pointless for the majority of use cases - yes I know that the exception is that you need to do work on a desktop.2012 will also be the year of the Linux desktop, again!
