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.

Let me put it this way.

When a man is dying of incurable cancer, would you organise a party with balloons and pinatas when the doctor tells you he cured that man's ingrown toenail?

Cuba is a totalitarian dictatorship. I find it kind of sad that people apparently find it okay that the Cuban government cares more about possible backdoors in software than it does about the well-being of its own people.

This is OSNews, we talk about OS.
You have your political view and many people don't agree with you. No need to start another cold war or propaganda war on OSNews. You probably never went to Cuba anyway.
