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.

The report in french is totally different in style than the reuters one.
they don't talk about the US relationship with Cuba at all and it looks like the cuban government didn't talk about the US.

they will base it on gentoo, but it does not mean they will compile everything from source. emerge does support binary packages.
