This case resulted in a lot of public attention — even Putin and Gorbachev commented on the case. Perm region schools may transition to Linux and Open Office to avoid Windows. Keeping in mind that there are tens of millions of unauthorized Windows users in Russia this is a greap PR event for promoting wider Linux and other Free Software use in Russia."
