    I hope they are not just leeching of Red Hat.

    I hope they contribute back to the Linux community.

    I welcome the three US-propaganda brainwashed commentators above!

    ROSA (eng. for "dew") is a company that won the government subsidy to build "national OS", which includes educational and public terminals.
    It is similar to Pardus in Turkey and LiMux in Germany.
    Of course they contribute back.

    Or you claim Calculate is stealing from Gentoo?

    Being Russian and been living in Russian Federation (and USSR prior its fell) for last ~30 years I could state that a company winning a government subsidy is a pretty good sign that this initiative shouldn't be treated seriously except for inventing a creative ways to steal^W^W extract money from country budget and find them a new sweet home somewhere in EU banks. I highly doubt that there would ever be a lot of contributions back to upstream from this startup and most probably it just would stick with being a rebranded RHEL for a while until a moment government contract would expire. Afterwards it would simply vanish.

    I doesn't hear about that. I also check Sirius TP "NPP" regulations but can't find any ROSA references. So - prooflink, please.
