Nova Linux: From Cuba with Love

nova linux distribution of cuba

Cuba is soon to get into the list of countries with a national Linux distribution. The interesting government of Cuba, which until last year did not allow her citizens to own a PC or a cellular phone, has made a quantum leap according to our man in Havana.

The distro has been introduced in 13. International Technology Fair to the enthusiastic spectators. Hector Rodriguez, Dean of Faculty of Open Source Software at University of Havana said:

"Linux is ideologically more convenient for us."

Closed sourced commercial  operating systems like Microsoft are not allowed into Cuba because of U.S. embargo.
