53. Cuba is Open Source
Unlike Microsoft, Linux is free and has open access that allows users to modify its code to fit their needs.
“Private software can have black holes and malicious codes that one doesn’t know about,” Rodriguez said. “That doesn’t happen with free software.”
Apart from security concerns, free software better suits Cuba’s world view, he said.
“The free software movement is closer to the ideology of the Cuban people, above all for the independence and sovereignty.”
