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.

Not really the smartest move considering the effects of the embargo on them


I didn't say it was smart. Besides, it's only the U.S embargo, much of the rest of the world doesn't really care about their Don Quiote-esque fight against communism and are gladly trading with Cuba.

but Cuba is just plain screwed.

Is? They've been doing it for 45 years. "Is screwed" may be a long time coming.
