Linux is gaining ground despite attempts to kill it by an abusive monopoly. Recently Indian Supereme Court announced that they are taking their GNU/Linux deployment to next level by switching over to Ubuntu Linux, the rising competitor of Microsoft's Windows.
Now, the Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has mandated that government will migrate to Linux and open source software by 2015.
The news came out in the wake the announcement that a Russian company, RPA RusBITech, is joining the Linux Foundation as a member. The company uses Linux and open source software to help manufacture complex training systems for a new generation of information and automation systems, decision support systems, domestic software general-purpose development and creation of information security and telecommunications.
"Linux is a strategic technology for RPA RusBITech, allowing us to focus our resources on innovation and speed," said Vladislav Lyapin, CEO, RPA RusBITech. "Our membership in The Linux Foundation will ensure we understand how best to collaborate with the global community to maximize our investment in Linux to help advance the operating system for all."
