Indian Govt to Launch Tailor-made OS For Official Use

The Indian government has developed a new improved version of Bharat Operating System Solutions (BOSS), and is set to replace Microsoft Windows and other Operating Systems.

The new OS was developed by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing and will be unveiled to all government stakeholders this week.

BOSS was build using the Linux Platform with the help of Gujarat Technical University, DRDO and other private computer manufacturers.

It claims to have capabilities that can effectively counter vulnerabilities, system breaches or attacks by hackers (source).

BOSS was initially developed in 2007 by National Resource Centre for Free/Open Source Software (NRCFOSS) of India. The latest version of BOSS was released in 2013 and is said to have progressed since its development.
