Linux and Open Source in Vietnam

Linux and Open Source recently started to gain ground in Vietnam.  Five years ago, it was difficult to find any Linux users here in Saigon.  Now, I think the number is approaching around one thousand for the whole country.  Linux servers are more commonly used, in particular, CentOS.  Ubuntu tends to be the most popular Linux distro here with Arch Linux, OpenSUSE and Slackware some of the leading favorites.  There now exists 3 Linux User Groups in Hanoi and Saigon with an emerging community in Danang.

Below are a list of sites pertaining to Linux and Open Source in Vietnam.  I also included Linux and Open Source Bloggers with the below list from Bloggers in Vietnam.  If you want to add a link, please contact me.
