BOSS Linux


BOSS Linux is a single-CD Debian-based distribution primarily designed for an Indian language user. BOSS 1.1, which was released last month by the Indian government-sponsored National Resource Center for Free/Open Source Software (NRCFOSS), includes several utilities and desktop enhancements, such as a document converter and the 3-D desktop Beryl, which make it a very usable distro, despite a few rough edges.
 
To assist Indian language users, BOSS, or Bharat Operating System Solutions, includes BharateeyaOO, a localized version of OpenOffice.org in Hindi and Tamil. The distro also bundles the Smart Common Input Method (SCIM) which allows Indian-language users to input text in Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Nepali, Bengali, Tamil, and Telgu.
 
In addition to the hard drive installation version, the distro also has a live CD version.
