Open source software equals socialism 

Looks like Venezuela has all but declared war on Microsoft:

The poster (picture courtesy Lubrio Blog) announces a meeting on the use of open source software to be held by the Science and Technology comittee of the National Assembly. "The march of the penguins" they call it in a not so subtle plug for Linux.

The banner reads "No to software patents" while the penguins sign declares "Open source software is socialism" (I could swear Lenin said something like that!)

Lets see, Arbenz was overthrown by the U.S. largely because he crossed United Fruit. In Allende's case is was Anaconda Copper that pushed for U.S. involvement. Maybe Chavez needs to beware what Microsoft could be up to.
