Submission + - Stallman convinces Cuba to switch to open source

prostoalex writes: "Big victory for Richard Stallman in North America, as Cuba decided to adopt open source software on the national level. Both Cuba and Venezuela are currently working on switching the entire government infrastructure to GNU/Linux operating system and applications, Associated Press reports from Havana: "Both governments say they are trying to wean state agencies from Microsoft's proprietary Windows to the open-source Linux operating system, which is developed by a global community of programmers who freely share their code." AP article doesn't mention the distro used for government workers, but says that the students are working on a Gentoo-based distro."
