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.

Windows is well known to have backdoors for the FBI and CIA and has had them for quite some time.



Where on earth did you get such a preposterous idea? If it is so well known, it would be against all current laws and US Federal regulations, and therefore would be shut down. Please post some type of proof in the way of links or whatever, not just conjecture.

Does this mean that the NSA has backdoors in Linux since they wrote and control SELinux??

He was off on the specifics, and it's not incontrovertible proof, but take a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NSAKEY

Well, I have proof those things are shutdown. Watergate, etc. Conspiracy theories are just that, theories. If you can give me actual proof, I'll begin to believe you. I don't do black helicopters.

Actually , where the internet and computer world is concerned there are very few US law and regulations outside of property laws. Reglementation and standards are not laws ...

Your crazy talking here the FBI and CIA wil never be shut down because they break US law or regulation ... Neither does Microsoft who brought the entire USDOJ to it's knee ...

Type FBI , CIA , Microsoft , Backdoors in Google ...

The NSA did not wrote nor control SELinux ... they participated in it , not the same thing. Even then they probably have a way to crack into it , but they will go hardware instead of software.
