I've long been interested in Russia. My favorite watches are Vostoks, my favorite vodka is Stoli and one of my favorite authors is Dostoyevsky.
Russians are also tops in the tech world. When I launched Virtualization Review I was amazed at how many startups had Russian origins. So when I heard that Russian government is spending nearly $5 million dollars (or 150 rubles) to create a version of Linux that will replace the need for Windows, I had to take it seriously.
The Russian rationale is two-fold: For one, it wants a more secure OS, and for two, it hates being that dependent on Microsoft.
Are you as impressed with Russian culture and technical expertise as I am? Share your opinion, in English, at [email protected] And would you ditch Windows if you could? Answers to that also readily accepted at [email protected]
