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.

We or the Cuban people should trust an OS designed and developed by a totalitarian dictatorship? That's insane. That's like trusting a cell phone designed and distributed by the KGB! All this finger pointing at the NSA/CIA, etc.....over supposed back-doors in Microsoft products. No one is forcing you to use their product. Be thankful that you who are posting on this site have the right to use the OS of your choice as well as access to the rest of the world!

Most Cubans aren't allowed ANY contact with the world off their little island, internet or otherwise.
