Probably it will rely a lot on proprietary software/hardware (Brazil manufactures very little in the way of networking/communications equipment, and our government is addicted to proprietary software) with their own backdoors.
Besides, our government spies on social movements, unions etc... so they are not innocent at all.
Finally: given the deep shit that this government is into, it will likely run over schedule and budget and will eventually be scrapped.
Linux and most open-source software runs on it. That's pretty much enough for most DIY hackers.

"Game prices are too high"? Seriously, is US$ 8 too expensive for you? We're not talking about an US$ 50 game here.
"People don't want to spend any amount of money without knowing what they will get in return."? There are demo versions available.
This is why you add a rule, and configure the guest operating system, to allow this application - but nothing else - to connect to the internet. While you're at that, you probably could do a minimal-enough install of Windows which would only run the application.

At least for me, in Windows 7 I didn't need any shell replacement (or much in the way of tweaking, really) unlike I needed in XP. In fact, whenever I use XP (I have some virtual machines for ancient software) I miss the Windows 7 interface.
Fake journals let anything and everything in, so you can pretend you have lots of papers published. Some of them pretend to be prestigious jornals: can't get published in Nature or Science? Why not Nature and Science?
