i have doubts on this figure. what exactly does he mean by "Malaysian 
software" ? is he referring to indigenously developed software, or just the 
total body of software used by malaysians.

i seriously doubt the statistic if it refers to the latter, as empirical 
evidence doesnt support it. if it's the former, then it's a good statistic 
and strengthens the notion that open source is an engine for the 
development of the local software industry.
