+ - Russia develops National Operating System

Submitted by
Elektroschock
Elektroschock writes "According to Russian media the Government is going to develop a National Operating System to lower its dependencies on foreign software technology licensing. The Russian plan will base its efforts on Linux and expects a worldwide impact. Microsoft is also involved in the round table process that led to the recommendation. The Chinese government successfully lowered its Microsoft licensing costs through an early investment in a national Linux distribution. I wonder if other large markets as the European Union will also develop their own Linux distributions or join the Russian initiative."
