North Korea manufacturing computers – and they’re running Linux
PC World reports that North Korea has started manufacturing computers, according to a report on North Korean state TV.
The range of machines available consists of two for educational use and one for office use.
The educational computers both run the same custom software and come in two versions: one is a netbook-sized laptop, whilst the other is a bland-looking box with a keyboard and mouse that’s designed to be connected to a television.
The machines are reported to use Red Star Linux – North Korea’s home-grown version of our favourite operating system.
