For Joe Kirkbride: I just want to make a couple of comments regarding the
computarization in Latinamerica. I think that it is not exactly correct
from you part, saying that every where in Latinamerica we have at least a
PC 486. Many institutions in Mexico, in the different countries of
Central America and also South America still lack a computer. I might
risk to say that even in Brazil there are many museums and herbaria that
do not have access to a computer.
Also, I would like to say that you are completely right, Macs are not
common in Latinamerica due to the fact that they are extremely
expensive. Purchasing a Mac, at least in Mexico, will be paying
approximately three times its price. On the other hand PCs are cheaper
and more accesible. Patricia Davila
