Linux Cuba recently launched its own answer to Windows this week, or, in the bigger picture, what the Cubans are calling "US Hegemony." Nova, the new open source OS being offered by the Cuban government, is being made to boot out US-based Microsoft products.

When a man is dying of incurable cancer, would you organise a party with balloons and pinatas when the doctor tells you he cured that man's ingrown toenail?


Sure beats "Yeah, he cured your ingrown toenail but that's no reason to be happy. You're gonna die soon anyway".

I find it kind of sad that people apparently find it okay that the Cuban government cares more about possible backdoors in software than it does about the well-being of its own people.


Who says anything about it being ok that they care more about one than the other? This posts was about sovereignty, not about what Cuba cares more about.
