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?

even Linux versions are precompiled for (at best) the Ubuntu LTS release.

Give me an executable compiled for Ubuntu LTS and I'll run it on any GNU/linux distro on the same architecture. In the worst case I'll setup a chroot with all the dependencies.
