New Distro Tailored For Romania Knocks At The Door

“the Cluj-based team launched in Bucharest and Cluj two PC operating systems that are one hundred per cent Romanian, which could be used by regular users or within public administration, the education system or defence institutions.”

Who says there are too many distros? What if a country likes Romania needs the security and efficiency of GNU/Linux in government, education and individual use? Why not make a distro to meet their needs? That’s the plan of one group and they have worked on it for 4 years now and this year they are lining up technical support and offering trials in education.

GNU/Linux is the right way to do IT, even in Romania. Judging by the page-views on StatCounter, Romania is ready for a breakout in education. School starts next week.

    Nothing a new generation of young people and their tendency to make the world a better place won’t fix. In one way or another this is happening in many places around the world, one PC or data-centre at a time.

    There certainly are plenty of Linux hosting companies in Romania as well as ample skilled Linux support staff that speak a multitude of languages. I have a few servers and more than a few staff over there. Their prices are low (rents, electricity, taxes), they have modern new IT infrastructure so bandwidth is fast (and cheap). The people are eager to work, quite skilled, and polite. What is there not to like?
