Glyn Moody writes “Vladimir Putin has signed an order calling for Russian federal authorities to move to GNU/Linux, and for the creation of ‘a single repository of free software used in the federal bodies of executive power.’ There have been a number of Russian projects to roll out free software, notably in the educational sector, but none so far has really taken off. With the backing of Putin, could this be the breakthrough free software has been waiting for?”
