In the News "The Russian state plans to revamp its computer services with a Windows rival to reduce its dependence on US giant Microsoft and better monitor computer security, a lawmaker said Wednesday. Moscow will earmark 150 million rubles (3.5 million euros, 4.9 million dollars) to develop a national software system based on the Linux operating system, Russian deputy Ilia Ponomarev told AFP, confirming an earlier report in the Vedomosti daily." Right. I guess this has absolutely nothing to do with this. Want to buy a unicorn?

They say it will be a version of Linux. Russia has a few commercial Linux distros like ALTLinux and ASPLinux.That 3.5 million Euros may just be lincense, training and deployment fees.

I would also like that Sharp and the chick please.
