It's being reported that Russia is switching its government to open source software and so is Cuba. The government of Cuba has set a strategic goal in 2011 to migrate most of its computers to open source software.

Xinhua reports, "Once the migration is fully implemented on the ground, the Cuban Nova Linux will be the operating system used in 90 percent of all working places, and Microsoft Office will be replaced by OpenOffice in all government institutions, Vice Minister of Information and Telecommunications Boris Moreno told Xinhua Tuesday."

Mereno said, "In 2010, Cuba made significant progress in migrating all its ministries and institutions to open source software."

He said that not only will open source save the country money, but "the process would enhance Cuba's sovereignty in the field of technology."
