OpenBSD Theo de Raadt has announced the release of OpenBSD 5.2. The OpenBSD 5.2 release page has a detailed list of all changes and improvements. As always, I would love for someone to write proper items about OpenBSD releases - it's outside my interests and cursory glances don't do it justice.

At some point in the 80s, our government decided that investing in computer science was critical and brought massive amounts of Thomson MO5 and TO7/70 computers to middle schools, together with new programmes that featured programming courses.

Hm, you most likely fared better than my place:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ZX_Spectrum_clones#Elwro_800_J... (epic casing ;> )

...and I haven't even seen either of them, ever. Nor any computer classroom before the PC era. Generally, probably another examples of economic cargo cults (~"developed countries produce lots of steel? Well then let's do lots of steel!"), quite prevalent in Warsaw Pact economies. The was no educational system to it, no real push.

Object-oriented GOTOs ? How would that work ? ;)

Exactly, the idea sounds crazy enough!(?) ;>

tonal programming languages and 7% less female programmer births per year? Well, sucks... ;)

Only 7% less would be a major improvement, me thinks...

But seriously, I mean generally how the Chinese supposedly strive for technology independence (also check out Loongson) - with their expanding sphere of influence, this should push their tech more and more over time. And language.
