Submission + - Cuba Embraces Open-Source Software

An anonymous reader writes: From The Washington Post (by way of the Associated Press): "Cuba's communist government is trying to shake off the yoke of at least one capitalist empire — Microsoft Corp. — by joining with socialist Venezuela in converting its computers to open-source software." Cuba's Communications Minister, Ramiro Valdes, has "called the world's information systems a "battlefield" where Cuba is fighting against imperialism."
