Cuba + Linux = Nova

13 February 2009 One Comment

The latest annual Conference on Communication and Technologies in Havana, Cuba announced a big surprise: Cuba it will have their own operating system: Nova. Nova it will be a Linux distribution what will be implemented on all over places from CUBA (from administration, government to school).

Apparently they had 3 big reasons:

1. Rumours about Cia/Fbi/NSA backdoors in Windows operating system.

2. The price

3. Totaly independece from SUA

It seems the latest visit of Richard Stallman in Cuba, at previous Conference on Communication and Technologies, was a successful one 🙂
