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.

Exactly.....and no one is forcing me to use Chinese or Taiwanese products. I have the choice to use whatever I wish and if I'm so paranoid to think that the Chinese government is interested in what I happen to be doing on my computer, then I can buy products made elsewhere.

Cuba's homegrown OS will be just another tool that the government there will use to spy on and control it's citizens. They won't have a choice. They'll be forced to use "CubaOS" and have the DGI (Directorate General of Intelligence) watching everything they do on a PC.
