BOSS Tarang 1.1 Review

Filed under

BOSS Linux, based in India, is trying to be the first Linux distribution trying to support all official languages of India. It does also support English which is also being used more in that country.

InstallationBoss Desktop

BOSS' installer is one that I have not come across before in any Linux distribution, but it was quite simple to comprehend and easy to follow to complete installation.

The setup procedures were quite simple with the usual questions of language, keyboard setup, time zones and root and user accounts. The partitioning of your hard drive of where you want to install BOSS is not that difficult as well.

Software and Configuration

BOSS uses the GNOME desktop 2.14.3 in a nicely clean layout.

Full Story.
