Linux Choson Minjujuui Inmin Konghwaguk, here in the west more commonly known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea or North Korea, is a country you usually read about in the foreign affairs section of the newspaper. As a logical consequence of its Juche ideology, North Korea has developed its own Linux distribution.

N Korea's not the first communist country to develop it's own Linux didn't / isn't Cuba developing Nova as the official state OS?

Don't know about Nova, but Red Flag is a Chinese distribution (isn't the official one of the country ?).

Very strange naming a product aimed at Spanish speaking people and using the name No va.

True, would have thought they'd have learned that lesson. One car company tried that--think it was Chevy--and it didn't go over too well.
