The developing world has possibly more compelling reasons to adopt open source solutions - the cost advantage makes it easier for them, and there is less historical reliance on proprietary solutions (and in some instances, vendors like Microsoft are not well liked). As in many other aspects of Western life, we shouldn't expect developing countries to follow the same timeline we have - they are likely to leapfrog a number of the steps in OUR technological evolution to catch up more quickly than perhaps we imagine. Opensource adoption is one potential beneficiary of this.

I agree fully. The question for open source in the developing world isn't if but when/how quickly large scale adoption occurs...
