Venezuela Embraces Linux

Alrighty, then. Here’s one that’s cool to me for several reasons. I lived in Venezuela for two years as a missionary for my church. I really learned to love and appreciate the Venezuelan people. It is great to see that they are embracing Open Source Software. Linux is really sweet, and so it is all just really cool to see cool people using cool software. Cool.

Excerpt:

“The Venezuelan government of President Hugo Chavez announced the launch of their ‘Bolivarian Computers’ last week, consisting of four different models produced in Venezuela with Chinese technology. The new computers will run the open-source Linux operating system and will first be used inside the government ‘missions’ and state companies and institutions but eventually are expected to be sold across Venezuela and Latin America.”

“Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez presented the new machines to the public last week at an event in the state of Falcon as he donated them to a school there. The new computers are produced by the joint venture VIT (Venezuela de Industria Tecnologica), which is owned by the Chinese company Lang Chao and the Venezuelan Ministry of Light Industry and Commerce.”
