    Default Red Star

    I'm sort of curious if they distribute source code with the distro. If not, I wonder if gpl-violations.org would have any chance to get them to comply?

    The Red Star is based on Linux, a free and open software operating system, but looks a lot like the Microsoft Windows on display. It also has a similar user interface.
    Eww! Probably using one of those ugly "XP" GTK+ themes.

    But of course! Given that Apple (and possibly Microsoft too) explicitly forbids using it's software to produce nuclear weapons, they really had no choice but to go for something using the GPL, which is free for any use. Upstanding and law abiding citizens of the world, as they are.

    Not at all!

    And let me be the first noting that KDE is the choice of the communists.

    I guess that would make Gnome the choice of Stalinists?

    That's nothing, the disclaimer my fuel pump for my old truck from TRW says it is not to be used in outer space or medical applications.

    I don't think so. AFAIK North-Korea is a Stalinist country, and their choice is clearly KDE. Stallmanists however do like GNOME

    Eww KDE! That's even worse than GNOME with "XP" theme.

    North Korea's official state of idealism is Juche.
