The aim of this project is to assess how different countries in Latin America and the Caribbean (LANIAC) have approached open source software adoption. Specifically, I focus on the recent open source initiatives in Brazil, Cuba, and Jamaica. I also include a brief assessment of literature on prominent approaches for open source adoption, and how different countries have approached adoption. I will highlight current limitations of open source adoption and make recommendations for where growth is possible.
