Sailfish Gets Russian Governmental Backing

The software will be used by all government organisations

The Russian Government has chosen Finnish operating system, Sailfish, as the backbone for all its government and state-owned organisations. The mobile platform, which is based on Linux software and created by former Nokia employees, will act as the basis for the new Open Mobile Platform, or OMP, which will be used across the country by government agencies. The announcement by the Russian government is a huge endorsement for Sailfish which has fallen far behind Android and iOS in the mobile operating system market. Russia’s Ministry of Communications said they looked into homegrown operating systems such as Tizen OS, but chose Sailfish as the base model for OMP because it “is the mobile OS platform of the future” and “has great potential in Russia and elsewhere”. The government has also recently funded initiatives allowing developers to migrate their own apps to Sailfish, even though it only holds less than 1% of the market.
