It looks like the North Korean Government has released the newest iteration of its very own operating system and it looks like something we’ve all seen before. The aptly named Red Star Linux is the official OS of the DPRK (which is strange because of the extremely low connectivity rate) and NOW is pretty much a Linux Distro skinned to look like Mac OS X. Granted, the OS is about 10 years old, but it always looked like a Windows knockoff, only with the recent version, it seems like all the Apple advertisements have made an impact.
According to PC World:
The world has gotten its first look at version 3 thanks to Will Scott, a computer scientist who recently spent a semester teaching at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST). The school is North Korea’s first foreign-funded university and many of the lecturers come from overseas.
Scott said he bought the operating system at a KCC dealer in the capital city and the screenshots he provided were of the basic version 3 software without any modifications.
