Being interested on advocating Linux and open source software, i am very happy to see national Linux distributions.
Turkey has one:
China has one:
North Korea has one:
And there are some rumours on the internet that Russia will have one.
Also there are many stories about Linux penetrating in different areas from French government, US Dept. of Defense, Lufthansa, Siemens, and the list continues…
Why is that? It’s because people don’t want to spend money anymore on Windows boxes/servers or another setup can’t do the job or people are just bored/fed up with what they have…or what…
