Boys the question is neither about the problems in linux nor about which one is best, about which one is easy, which one is latest. The Problem of growth of Linux in Pakistan are
1) Availability of various distributions.
Linux is not easily available .I got my RD9 after a long hard straggle most of the cd, s I tried were courpted. The only other distribution available in Faisalabad in Mandrake 9.No one bother about spending RS 300 for purchasing Linux distribution from Karachi (PLUC) I got my RD9 for RS 75.Where one can get Win XP only for RS 35.No one download any Linux distribution (1900 MB) on internal modem.
2) Training (support) for Linux.
You will hardly find any institution which is offering Linux training. I saw one banner in the city offering training in Linux 9. What is Linux 9? They did not know the basics of Linux. May be they were talking about RD9.Where as you can find countless institutions offering windows training. Is PLUC offering any sort of Linux training or held some seminars on Linux?
One of my friends brothers is doing M.Sc in computer sciences at Punjab University. He took Red hat 9 from me saying Punjab University is offering Linux training. I talked to him last night. He said to me that it is not started yet (4 month back he took cds) and may be university led down this course.
3) 1500 members at PLUC.
Only 19 members poll at the topic. What are others doing? Are all of them beginners? I saw the members mailing list. I think almost 50% did not even post a single reply, or a single Question.
The question remains, how Linux grow in Pakistan.
One good thing at least we have a PLUC forum were pep can help beginners and each other.
