It will continue to exist for a long while in the minds of many 
people.  That's just the way things are - you never get anywhere near 100% 
of the people supporting you.  The question is whether in Portugal, you 
feel that going with a non-Microsoft solution means a complete up-hill 
battle or not.

I can tell you that in general, companies in Europe appears to be more open 
to open-source solutions much more than ones in the US.  Of course, Europe 
is comprised of lots of different countries, and each country has lots of 
different companies, so your mileage may vary.
