    I'm going with a large dose of pessimism although I'd be delighted if BOSS is a success. The Softpedia link has this:
    And why the claim that it's totally indigenous (in the DNA link)?
    Mis-selling and misrepresenting will only hurt any venture.

    Edit: And if they're planning to work in secrecy, they'll be losing out on all that various communities (and organzations) can offer.

    This is awesome!

    Does China also have something like this?

    I don't want to sound harsh, but Boss=Debian sans any security update + some local language addition + change in wallpaper + the nonsensical claim of indigenousness. Actually it's not a news, It has been the same since 2007 when it was first "created".
