“We have two big simultaneous issues, about developing software and designing IT systems, in my country.
One of them our main policy from the government about working based on the open source technologies, because unfortunately no direct contact with the US government.
The other is bad integration of open source technologies, with the other great Microsoft technologies, especially side of users and clients. As you know in the small to midrange business it’s almost impossible developing systems without using the Microsoft technologies.
We must always choose a trade off between them; I think for the small to midrange business needs we have no other choice but Microsoft technologies.”

Iranian SharePoint Blogger
Farvashan is a blogger from Iran, he recently started an English SharePoint blog on sharepointblogs.com. His English is a lot better than my Farsi, but still requires slow reading to get his meaning. However he's keeping up with the latest changes in Microsoft's SharePoint technologies and has an interesting POV operating within the economic and political restrictions in Iran.
