Linux just a cover for piracy?

Linux just a cover for piracy? - Asia Computer Weekly, September 8, 2003
A report it released on Aug 18 said that much of Linux’s success in Thailand is due to its use as a cover for software piracy.
"Gartner believes that most of the Linux shipments will eventually have illegal copies of Windows installed—a fact that makes Linux’s seeming dominance of this market somewhat misleading," the report stated.
Principal analyst Martin Gilliland, one of the report’s authors, went so far to say that more than 90% of the country’s ICT PC computers that ship with pre-installed Linux is likely to have pirate copies of Windows within 30 days of delivery.
