Sun offer cut price products to third world: "In an interesting move clearly aimed at expanding their market share in the developing world, Sun Microsystems have today announced a new pricing model for their Java Enterprise System for users in developing nations.  The new pricing ranges from a mere 33 US cents per citizen per year, up to a larger but still incredibly low USD 1.95 per citizen per year. Prices are presumably based on licenses being bought for everyone in the country.

The exact price per country is worked out using two factors, the first being the number of citizens in the country, and the second being the stage of development of the country as defined by the UN's Department of Economic and Social Affairs classification."  The idea is to allow blanket lisencing for applications, especially e-government, health, and education.
