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?

Well, in Russia there will be like this: government will assign those 3.5 million euros, then start the project. After some time there will be talks, that the work is going on, after more and more time everybody will forget that project, but those 3.5 mln euros will sat down in some politicians pocket.
