Which is not necessarily a good thing. Sure, GNU/Linux does have its benefits and advantages, but it's not a completely positive thing if it would become the norm. And certainly not for the economy. Never forget that the GPL is a Communist license.
But it would definitely be a good thing if both GNU/Linux and Mac OS X as well as various *BSD operating systems would have a more proportional market share vis-Ã*-vis Windows.
Personally, I'd also ditch Windows if GNU/Linux had better support for graphics drivers, games and other great programs currently exclusive to Windows.
By the way, this "news" is old, I read it months back that Russia was developing their own national version of GNU/Linux. The US military is already using GNU/Linux, an so are other governemnts who have ditched Windows for Ubuntu.
