    No internet, or no internet OUTSIDE Cuba? Big difference for a linux user...

    You can't export anything from US to Cuba, but as far as I am aware the other way around is legal.

    The video you linked too doesn't work, but this one does: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTXIzaxfox4

    I want an English version!! It looks great!

    I may not know the language, but if you look at the gksudo window in the demo, it looks as tough there is an option to remember your athourisation for as long as you stay logged in, and some other option. Translation to Enlish: you don't have to type in your password anymore to change system settings/software every 15 minutes!

    I hope there is an english version, I am going to search for it. now

    Actually the country is served by something like a 50mbps link. The whole country. 50mbps. Whole country. So they have Internet and I don't they they are legally not allowed on it so some reason it's just impossible to give it to all citizens.

    With Castro gone and Raul already enacting some reforms mybe Obama will improve relations between USA and Cuba. It would be a major milestone if it were to happen. And then since they will be able to do trade with USA they'd be able to connect to USA Internet backbones very easily. And then they can update their Linux distro. So as you can see this post has to do with politics related to FOSS.

    I edited my post after reading some enlightening articles.
    Apprenetly USA doesn't allow cuba to use fiberoptics in cuba coast. But cuban government uses it as an excuse to limit internet use in the country. Complicated stuff

    Try getting Cuban cigars back into the USA. I'm pretty sure the trade embargo works both ways.

    I just can't understand why this didn't happen before... Venezuela did some outstanding stuff with the money they save not paying for windows anymore. See venezolana de industria tecnológica...

    Brazil is another example...

    Hope that more countries start understanding what technological sovereignity means once and for all
