BOSS – BHARATIYA OPERATING SYSTEM BY CDAC
FREE INDIAN HINDI OPERATING SYSTEM BOSS – BHARATIYA OPERATING SYSTEM
BHARAT OPERATING SYSTEM – BOSS – FREE BHARATIYA OPERATING SYSTEM FOR INDIA
India always needed our own Operating System which can work in our own Indigenous environment and cater to the needs of our own users. For example Hindi is very widely used in India, particularly in the North where the Computer usage is growing. The large portion of our Indian literature is available in Hindi and PC users are Indian. A Customized OS for Indian needs was long awaited and has now been fulfilled by CDAC who have come up with a Indian or Bharat Operating System based on Linux and Open Office. The Free Indian Operating System has many other inbuilt Tools like Email Clients, Browsers etc, which are available in a Single Install. Now we hope that some how the Indian users can get a distance from the Microsoft dependent Technology Solutions and can start a fresh way of using PC with Indian OS or BHARAT OPERATING SYSTEM – BOSS. Thank you CDAC.
