Deferent reasons like, they can be taken free of charge, minimum risks of virus, easy to use and user friendly affected this. As a developing country Sri Lanka turns to use open source because the cost of open source is lower than other operating systems.
From recently Sri Lankan education attention tends to “Open Source”. Minister of education of Sri Lanka has launched a program to introduce “Open Source” to the school teachers and students in public schools. Many schools are beginning to establish computer centers only with Open source operating systems.
