All of that said, I hope that someday the North Korean people are able to really learn about Linux. It would be wonderful if they were truly exposed to the ideas of openness, free software, and adaptability that Linux is all about.
|Product:||North Korea Linux (Red Star OS)|
|Web Site:||Torrent Link (This link takes you to the Russian forum where I downloaded the torrent file for this distro, you have to register to download it). Go here for the official North Korea web site.|
|Pros:||There really aren’t any in this distro. Once you get beyond the novelty, there’s nothing particularly interesting or exceptional about it.|
|Cons:||Available only in the Korean language; created to monitor and control the web behavior of the North Korean people.|
|Suitable For:||Those who can read the Korean language, and distrohoppers who just want to play around with it.|
|Summary:||North Korea Linux (Red Star OS) is an oddity, to say the least. Linux is geared toward being open and adaptable, this distro is a bit of a mockery of that concept. This distro should be considered as a novelty and nothing more.|
