It looks and sounds kind of like KDE build to me. KDE is often not the most stable implementation of the Linux package at least to my experience. I have tried several build with in the KDE version the newest being Ubuntu.
Either way I might try to find and run one of these, just see how Kernel Red Star run's. One of the things I do notice especially in regards to Kim Jung IL having this built is the Red Star title. I also find the blog authors implementations to flow along with that, with Red particularly being the color of the communist party.
Hmmm, and I thought North Korea were closed off to all foreign influences, yet Microsoft managed to find a way in.
>> "Looks Like Windows"
This "looks like Windows" only as much as any other GUI "looks like Windows". It looks like they installed a version of KDE 3.5 Linux desktop circa 2007 and threw worlds ugliest icon theme on top of it.
I *seriously* wonder who's going to be using this OS, given that most of North Korea doesn't even have electricity. Look at this satellite photo of Korea at night:
It's quite easy to see where South Korea ends.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Just did a web search - Yep, that's the KDE 3.5 desktop. I guess they don't have any hardware capable of running the current version (4.4).
Thats exactly what I thought it would be (or some iteration of KDE), which I have used. I actually really like KDE, but have never stuck with it as it has always seemed less stable to me Vs. other versions of Linux builds.
