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.

Most GNU/Linux vendor are US based or have US offices Red Hat , Novell , Gentoo , etc ... The US government is a huge user of GNU/Linux it's just never mentionned because it's not what cost the most ...

Corporate world mostly use Free Software and Open Source solution , there is more of everything else then there are Microsoft desktop ...

Russia and China already started their switch to Free Software a long time ago.

What's great with Free Software is you can pay someone to adapt it for you and then deploy it once it's ready.

Munich is a city first , so you probably meant Germany wich is the country where the city is , they are part of the EU , a founding member at that , witch as open source requirement and they plan on migrating 80% of their workforce for sure :
