    Although OS X has made great strides in the last half decade in regaining market share, the various permutations of Windows still rule most of the computing world, largely thanks to the reliance of [COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=inherit ! important][COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=inherit ! important]enterprise[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] and government networks. Now one of the largest and most powerful countries on Earth is ready to dump Microsoft as a client, and make no mistake… it’s a move indicative of a growing schism with the United States similar to that we experienced in the Cold War.


    The country we’re talking about here is Russia, who plans to transition its computer infrastructure from Windows to open-source operating systems like Linux. The order was given by none less than Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who wants the transition completed by 2015… and who also wants to create a national repository for open-source applications similar to Apple’s App Store.


    When we mentioned the Cold War earlier in this post, we didn’t mean to imply that Russia’s adoption of [COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=inherit ! important][COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=inherit ! important]Linux[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] would somehow lead to global nuclear war. However, it;s undeniable that Russia and America’s diplomatic relations have been frosty lately, especially when it comes to arms talks. Given that, Russia’s move to divorce its IT infrastructure from relying upon an American company’s [COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=inherit ! important][COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=inherit ! important]operating [/FONT][COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=inherit ! important]system[/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] seems like another small step away from relying upon America.

    Mimi huwa nasema siku zote huwezi kuendelea na kuheshimika kama utakuwa
    na mtazamo tegemezi. Hii ni katika kila kitu... tekinolojia, uchumi, elimu n.k.

    Sasa Russia ili kuonyesha mabavu na ushashawishi katika eneo la ulaya mashariki
    na baadae dunia nzima nilazina wasiwe tegemezi.

    Ingeshangaza kama wao wanataka kuwa taifa kubwa wakati software wanazo
    tumia katika nyanja za kitaifa ni za kampuni ya microsoft. Sasa kama microsoft
    watashinikizwa na uncle Sam kutouza Russia si watakuwa wameliwa?

    Huyu jamaa anamkakati wa nguvu kujenga nchi yake na we ngoja tuu muda wa
    medvedev uishe ili mwenyewe aingie uone.

    Mkuu wa russia hata wakiendelea kutumia microsoft wana uwezo wa kutmia "open source" version ya microsoft. teh teh. Sisi tunajua Windows sio open lakini kwa wa russia iko open ni mambo ya copyright tu.

    Ukifutilia taaarifa utaona hata kabla mirosoft hawajatoa OS zao Russia wanakuwa wameshapata cracked version yake. This tell me wa russia wanaweza kutumia thieir own version/breed of Microsoft .

    While pirated version nyingi za microsft ziko russia na china Microsoft hawawezi kufurahia hii move. wangependa waone warussia wanatumia pirated/cracked version za windows kuliko legal copies za open source kama linux

    Bahati mbaya sana Africa hatuna viongozi wa aina ya Putin wenye maono ya mbali. Viongozi wetu ni wachovu wa kufikiri wanaowaza kupewa net na masupa wa holywood na kudhuria dhifa za Mswati. Damn!
