For those familiar with the Mexican Linux initiative this comes as no
surprise. There was never a proper political endorsement (buy-in) to the
idea and there were never sufficient resources dedicated to the effort,
even if MicroSoft had not been aggressive in marketing its own product.

Any good idea, in the absence of a political buy-in and in the absence of
an adequate resource base for implementation, is only a good idea. It's
probability of success will always be low.
