What Your Business Can Learn from Russia

"Freedom" may not be a concept that's historically associated with Russia, but as for technology, the federation will soon be far freer than many businesses can even imagine--free from Windows, that is, and its legacy of high costs, malware, and perpetual hardware upgrades.

Following in the footsteps of numerous other governments around the world, Moscow has reportedly set aside 150 million rubles to develop a national software system that's based instead on Linux. Its goals? To reduce Russia's dependence on Microsoft and to increase security, according to reports.

"We will become independent of Windows," Russian deputy Ilia Ponomarev told AFP Wednesday. The details of the new operating system will reportedly be decided at a meeting in December.

"Though all men live in ignorance before mystery,
they need not live in darkness...
Justice is foundation and Mercy ETERNAL

"All that we do is touched by Ocean
Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."
Richard Wilbur
