Being a third world country has a lot of technical difficulties to over come. this revoltionary new operating system which will now enable the localy educated villagers to comunicate with the outer world.

Are you involved in the development of this new OS? Do you know where more information is available and whether it is available for download? Is it open source? Can you download it for free?

Very interesting.

I am not directly involved in developing the operating system but i have made contributions in testing it extensively. I am an engineer from India. It is available with the systems one gets to buy from the government offices here. The systems are relatively inferior and has the capability to run only this OS. If you were in India i would have sent a licensed copy of it to you. Very Happy

Great Going BOSS.

But what the heck is "can buy from government offices ":O:O :O

You are going to make a linux based OS popular in India buy selling it Surprised

no way, The only way to get a new thing popular is to give it free.

Not necessarily. In the west, Microsoft dominate, but in the east they don't have their foot so firmly in the door so there's a lot more competition.

misunderstanding ... total misunderstanding this is not for regualar citizens , those who want it like developers and so can buy computers from the so called gov.t offices and the os comes as just a built in os but the systems will be so poor that it cannot run any other os

So its a low resouce hungry one? great.

Did I understand this correctly and will this be sold? :O

I would advice a already existing Linux distro to cut costs and they will be better of than creating another OS and do lots from scratch.

Hmm... great idea. I think They'll try to localize it rather than to re-invent the wheel from the scratch :S
awz, most of the linux destros are ( i mean the not so popular ones) modifications of another destro.
