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.

America is the only country that has spies?


No and I'm not dividing the world into bad US and good the rest, I have real problems with the UK governments data collection, on it citizens, for example - in fact I rather envy US citizens for the constitution, so if you want US Bad UK worse.

You mean like Columbia?


No I was rather thinking of individuals and criminal gangs

You mean like Austria?


No I was rather thinking of individuals and criminal gangs

Like say Iran or Syria?


Possibly - Syria did harbour Ilich Ramirez Sanchez (Carlos the Jackal) but I was thinking Afghanistan under the Taliban or Libyan support for the IRA

Is that some kind of veiled reference to Iraq where they just had elections?


No I was thinking of Allende and the Pinochet coup, or possibly US support for Mobutu Sese Seko

Yeah, especially if you think all the world's evil is centered in the U.S. and Cuba


Again I'm not dividing the world between the baddies US and Cuba and the goodies the rest. I can think of much worse places than the US (a place I'd like to live and work in) and probably Cuba, one being a day or so North of where I live, in fact in terms of poverty, life expectancy and opportunity much of Africa would be worse.

Worse is common
