Russian software comes to match Russian computer hardware

30 Jun '20
A Russian Linux-based operating system has been developed to power computers driven by the Baikal chips from a domestic company called Baikal Electronics.

In this project, Baikal Electronics teamed up with Bazalt-SPO, the developer of the Alt family of operating systems.

We are glad to watch our partnerships in promoting a national hardware ecosystem bear fruit and generate operating systems compatible with our processors. The doors are being opened to creating 100% domestic products in a near future. We hope to already see examples of 100% Russian items based on both Russian hardware and Russian software emerge in the market in Q3 2020, Baikal Electronics CEO Andrei Evdokimov said in a comment to the news.

It was back in late 2015 that plans to launch serial production of Russias pioneering chip, the Baikal-T1, with a cost of $60 apiece were first announced. At about that time, Lenovo, a sizable Chinese computer maker, was reported to show interest in using the Baikal in its PCs and mobile gadgets.
