From the article

In a strange twist of events which include former Russian President and Nobel Prize winner, Mikhail Gorbachev, calling Bill Gates and current Russian President Vladimir Putin making comments on software piracy, Russian school may be moving to Linux very soon. It almost sounds like a cold war spy novel. Anyways, the Russian school system is looking to move to ASPLinux, a localized Linux disto, to combat software piracy.
