According to StatCounter, there has been a slow but steady shift to GNU/Linux in Russia, with a daily heartbeat. Is this usage in schools and governmental offices as planned? It could be but I would have expected a more dramatic shift than we’ve seen in countries with a more gradual approach to migration. Instead we sell a much less dramatic shift but still with a heartbeat (higher usage weekdays than on weekends) indicating work/school usage.
There is another plan which almost certainly will involve replacing Wintel PCs with GNU/Linux PCs gradually, by a million units per annum, the move to Baikal processors, a derivative of ARM. Recently, in response to sanctions over Ukraine, Russia will officially prefer home-grown “solutions” for IT. There are signs of a digital “cold” war emerging and the world’s IT is dependent on several components originating in Russia. Such pressures will surely accelerate migration to GNU/Linux in Russia. It’s a short cut to independence.
