Russia Will Migrate to Open Source

Russia has made a big step after Prime Minister Vladimir Puttin has ordered government agencies there to migrate to open-source software by 2015. It will start by dropping Microsoft products and replacing it with a national open source operating system based on Linux. They will also start to use Open Source application on every federal agency.

By migrating to Open Source completely, Russia will have a big saving for their budget because it will free them for paying the licenses in every Microsoft products they bought.
