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?

Or maybe it will be something that will be as revolutionary as the sputnik, open a new era in human history. Americans will spy on that, copy it and rewrite history afterwards so as to appear like they invented the thing and the Russians spied on them, and explain to us how backward and low quality Russian products are, thanks Hollywood.
