In case we have many Linux users here, I thought this article may be of interest to you as well. Forgive me for paraphrasing Sting's song, but I was part of the cold war in Berlin!

Russian authorities have moved closer to implementing their plan of replacing the Windows OS on military systems with a locally-developed operating system named Astra Linux.

Last month, the Russian Federal Service for Technical and Export Control (FSTEC) granted Astra Linux the security clearance of “special importance,” which means the OS can now be used to handle Russian government information of the highest degree of secrecy.

Until now, the Russian government had only used special versions of Windows that had been modified, checked, and approved for use by the FSB.
