The Vietnamese Government has signed a deal that would allow all their computers to have a legitimate copy of Windows. The Minister of Finance had signed a deal for Microsoft Office last year during his trip to Microsoft. According to CNN, 90% of software used is pirated and are for sale for just 50 cents. Steve Ballmer witnessed the event.
Vietnam had introduced the Internet 10 years ago, and 15 million out of 84 million has subscribed. Ballmer also went online in a Vietnamese chat room, hosted by Vietnamnet. He will also be visiting Malaysia, Singapore and Australia this week.
