That's good - computers are of course a world-wide market and Linux has been a world-wide product for ages now. Most notably in China - the standard operating system there is Red Flag Linux, optimized for use with their writing style. Microsoft have only recently targeted the market in China - too little too late; the Chinese are very reluctant to pay for an operating system, especially one which is as inferior to RFL as Windows (since Windows is very bad at rendering Chinese writing), where RFL is the most compatible product with everything in Chinese computing.

Anyway, off on a tangent there. The wider-spread an operating system is, the better. OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) is apparently using a Linux-based solution for their laptops too.

It seems that Linux is the preferred operating system in places where Windows has only recently touched, or hardly touched at all, i.e. developing countries.

BOSS is just a PoS, IMO. When I used it last year, they servers were perpetually down. They have no advantage whatsoever over other existing distros except some extra work, but then again they aren't even sending many of it upstream so that it can be included in other distros too.
