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.

Yeah, that does have a lot to do with it. But you know, back in the good ole 80's it was because of the ultimate evil: communism. At least officially.
Sort of how now it is officially because the Cuban people is opressed and Castro is (was) a dictator.

Plus I wanted to use "Don Quiote-esque".
