BOSS (Bharat Operating System Solutions) is a GNU/Linux distribution developed by C-DAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing) for enhancing the use of Free/ Open Source Software throughout India. BOSS Linux - a key deliverable of NRCFOSS is an Indian GNU/Linux distribution & currently localized to Tamil / Hindi. Targeting Indian user it is designed as a user-friendly Desktop environment coupled with Indian language support and other packages that are highly relevant for use in the government domain.Subsequent version will support the educational domain as well. The ultimate goal is to localize into all 22 official Indian regional languages. So this benefits non-english speakers to reach technology that bridge digital divide in India.


Well it should be good if the government employs such strategies. At least local govt. is villages and municipal corporations can use this as the cost of setting up licensed OS's like Windows is too high for them. Plus the availability in Indian languages will make the Computerization of local bodies a bit simpler.

The OS is free of cost and CD's can be ordered online or downloaded. The price of Rs. 200 applies for a 1yr support.
