Free software opportunities for developing countries (In French)
Our paper analyses the free software opportunities for developing economies. First we consider the adoption’s dimension. We show that they seem to be a credible option to support the computerization of these countries. Indeed, the free software could be an alternative to the piracy. Second we consider the importance of the argument of technological independence. In this perspective, we discuss the appropriatenesses of free software for the productive system of these countries.
