    Heard about it. I think there was a small discussion in this forum. Not many use it it seems.

    Bharat operating system is a Linux distribution developed by National Resource Center fot Free/Open Source Software. This software package has been described as India's own operating system. It is the most meaningful product to come out of the Indian software industry.

    For a new OS to take off there has to be something in it that others don't have and a lot of people looking to use that feature.

    I saw a TV ad of this OS couple of weeks back. I am always reluctant to try new linux flavors and will definitely try it.

    The project needs a 10-year goal along with resources to offer sufficient support to users. To me, BOSS looks like a half-hearted attempt at making something great. Like China, India wanted to get rid of its dependency on proprietary operating system Windows by building its own operating system that would support local languages and would not have any security concerns. China's COS, which is expected to launch next month, is designed for use on mobile phones, tablet devices and desktop PCs on the Chinese mainland. BOSS on the other hand, works only on desktops and notebooks. Better use Ubuntu.
