I am not familiar with how oppressive the Russian Software Police (or what the ex-KGB types call themselves these days) can be. I do not live there.

The point is that it would be legal unless they outlaw the internet and OpenBSD. Can they make a group download the Russian approved version of OpenBSD used a a web server. There are Russian contributors to the OpenBSD project and 2 FTP mirrors.

To look at it another way, why is MS so pervasive that a Russian Environmental Group feels compelled to use that OS? I would wager that OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Centos, Slackware, Debian would do everything they needed. Is there some reason these groups do not go out and recruit someone who is facile with Open Source?
