It recently turned out that the latest version of the Apple OSX platform looks very similar to the Korean Red Star OS. The latter is local “home-grown” software installed on machines in public places like libraries and schools. Earlier the North Koreans claimed that they inspired Microsoft’s Windows and it did bear an uncanny resemblance to XP.
Although people in North Korea live in a country mostly shut off from the rest of the world, many of them still have access to various kinds of technology, including cell phones. However, Internet access is locked down, so people can only visit a few websites usually serving up state-sponsored news.
Red Star operating system is peppered with North Korean propaganda – for example, its calendar shows not 2014, but 103 – this is the number of years since the birth of former North Korean leader Kim Il-sung. While there were rumors that Apple considered developing a calendar using Steve Jobs’ birthday, thus far such suggestion is rejected as being too far ahead of its time.
The latest version of Red Star OS have been released last year, and while the outside world believes that North Korea must have copied Apple, some dissidents claim that Kim Il-sung couldn’t produce an operating system of his own and it must have been developed by the Chinese, but the rest of North Korea knows the truth – it was definitely Kim Il-sung who inspired Apple, and not just Apple – the Chinese as well, and before that – Microsoft. It’s a shame nobody just takes these claims seriously.

|are you serious?|
|Kim Il-sung, thank you for bringing us Microsoft, Apple, and Jesus, we owe you so much.|
|OSX already here, no need to make lookalike OS.|
People are hanging onto the Windows XP not because they fear or hate Windows 7/8 but because the things still do what they wanted to
You don't replace your refrigerator every 2 years just because there are new refrigerators out there in markets
|In reality, Apple Steve Jobs was the biggest copycat|
of all times. First, there were several computers
already on the market way before Apple's first computer
came out. Who you think wrote the first OS for Apple's
computer? Yes, Microsoft Bill Gates. No, they didn't
invented the Ipot, Iphone and most other technology.
Has Apple Really Ever Invented Anything?

|<Earlier the North Koreans claimed that they inspired Microsoft’s Windows and it did bear an uncanny resemblance to XP.>|
And I suppose they'll claim they created all the 13 PREVIOUS versions of Windows as well? (5 DOS-based [1.0, 2.0, 2.1, 3, 3.1], 3 90 series [95, 98, ME], and 5 NT versions [3.1, 3.5, 3.51, 4.0, 2000], before XP) (NT series & 9x series were concurrent)
I think it would be a LOT safer (and more truthful) to say the NK's decompiled Win 2000 (or ME ... or BOTH) rewrote some sections then recompiled it to create their own OS. You can't create a GOOD, STABLE, WORKING OS on your FIRST TRY ... it takes knowledge, time,and practice ... something Microsoft have been building for 32 years (since 1982 when Windows 1.0 started development ... it wasn't released to the public until 1985.)
ANOTHER reason to think it's a slightly modified version of windows is SOFTWARE ... all software is designed to use system drivers to access hardware, and are thus OS SPECIFIC (ie Windows progs don't work on Android, OSX progs don't work on Windows, etx, etc). Different OS's are incompatible without emulators.
YADA, YADA, YADA.
Basically the Nth Koreans are so full of it, the Sh!t is coming out their ears!
|Well said LazyPirate !|
Difficult though to know the truth because people like to believe what they want to believe even if the truth lies toward them.But for North korea this has to stop but what really can we do against it ?
Hum....People won't open their eyes.Death the only answer ?
I know it is a different matter but as for myself living in France we face now what french people faced in 1789.The history repeating itself again and again.
Cannot change human nature easily...
Tell me without stong method what can be done ?
You got the answer,phone me...
thanks for reading...
|ZerlindaX - what a load of shit you talk - you're an obvious apple hater - and an obvious twat.|
|Learn to read fatturtle. ZerlindaX is right. Both Gates and Jobs succeeded only because they ripped off people's ideas and put them on the market before anyone else could.|
And yes, every literate person that values their personal security hates Apple, Microsoft, Google, and every other fascist(=merging of corporate/goverment power) arm of the NSA that's conducting a cold war on the public.

|Dam NOW that explains once and for all why we all are stuck with Microcrap.|
just wait for it; thy will come out next they wrote Linux..
|YoMammaSoFat - I can read my friend, I was correcting the comment that Bill Gates wrote the first OS for Apple. He did not. Your turn to go read. And all this 'they copied from other people' is bullshit too, they were both given lots of ideas by Xerox - google Xerox Parc AND DO SOME READING.|
|anybody that believes this. I have some swamp land and a bridge to sell you.|
|@fatturtle, first you could keep all the basis sexist|
comments to yourself. And no, I'm not a Apple hater.
I personally use Linux. I'm just giving you the facts.
Yes, Microsoft did licensing out Applesoft Basics for
the Apple's II computers.
Check this video out "Has Apple Really Ever Invented
Anything"? and learn my friend. Knowledge is power!

|The Red Star OS is just a common garden variety Linux distro, just tailored for North Korea and a passing ressemblance to OS X 10.5 Leopard (2007). I praise the fact that it's KDE based. It serves a purpose, and that's all.|
|ZerlindaX, the problem is not your attitude as much as that you're just wrong.|
The first Apple I and IIs ran an OS called "Integer."
Only later did they license Bill Gate's version, which was called AppleSoft.
So, your history is a bit off if you're going to maintain that Gates wrote the first Apple OS.

|If I were to invent Fart-Bubble flavored acne medicine prophylactic all-purpose-action chewing gum, N.Korea will claim that as well. smh|
|ZerlindaX you're wrong, bill gates he dint wrote mac os he was one of the 50 people who worked on mac os and none of them can claim Mac os its their product it belongs to Apple, Steve Jobs was the leader of this project which makes him the inventor, its like going to your boss and claiming that you made that and its yours you know what happens you get fired, maybe you have never worked in your live|
also have little respect for the dead man without him Extratorrent would probably wouldnt exist
OS X its better than Windows who tells me otherwise clearly you're full of crap!

|1 - Im really confused ZerlindaX, what did fatturtle say anywhere in any of his post's that had anything to do with a " basis sexist|
2 - Hey DigitalLogin & ListentotheMan, stop trying to point out facts,what are facts compared to a youtube video!!!!ZerlindaX's argument is backed up by a youtube video!!!! You may as well stop arguing now,because if there is anything that is 100% fact an NEVER wrong,its a youtube video....right???
|Check this video out "Has Apple Really Ever Invented|
Anything"? and learn my friend. Knowledge is power!
you're YouTube friend is a retard! Basically what he says that nobody ever invented anything.. they just combined metal with oil and made an airplane, fuc$ing dus%bag!!!!!!!!!!
|mwd25 Lol! A+ comment!|
|Did anyone read this story and give it more thought than required to process the movement of your mouse to the X button to close the tab? It's ludicrous to say the least, hilarious at best. North Korea is a joke. They did recently threaten South Korea via Fax, after all....|
|sarcasm.exe Yea get your facts strait check this video out|
|I think both Microsoft and Apple came from copying/stealing. Steve Jobs copy the mouse from Xerox company and re-invented while Bill Gates a programmer who bought DOS from their company copy the idea of apple OS windowing and re-apply to DOS which became WINDOS.|

|OK ... since ZerlindaX has decided to COMPLETELY DISREGARD the OFFICIAL HISTORY of Apple Inc, and the PM I sent her a few days ago, I'll post it PUBLICLY!|
AS SENT TO ZerlindaX:
Steve Jobs was Apple Inc's Chief ADMINISTRATOR, not a techie (THAT title went to Steve Wozniak who, in 1976, single-handedly invented the Apple I computer [AND WROTE THE OS FOR IT], and showed it to Jobs, who then had the idea of creating a company and SELLING them.)
The OS for the Apple I and early Apple II (from 1977 to 1979) was called 'Integer BASIC' (Written by WOZNIAK), but the LATER OS (called 'Applesoft BASIC') was used on the Apple II Plus (from 1979) and later variants of the Apple II, and was written by Microsoft employees Marc McDonald and Ric Weiland (it was a re-written, updated variant, BASED ON 'Microsoft BASIC', which was written by MS founders Paul Allen and Bill Gates in 1976 for the 6502 series processors, when there were no production computers that used that processor ... so it was shelved.)
The MAJOR thing you didn't take into account was the company PRODUCTS ... Microsoft started as a SOFTWARE company, Writing OS's and programs for IBM, Apple, and several others. Whereas Apple was a HARDWARE company, and was primarily responsible for the proliferation of AFFORDABLE Personal Computers in the home. Without EACH OTHER, NEITHER company would be as big as they are today. (whether that's a good thing ... or not ... I'll leave to personal preference)
OH, and Zerobalance ... you need to get the facts right ... the MOUSE was invented at Stanford Research Institute ... XEROX invented the Graphical User Interface. Jobs received WRITTEN PERMISSION from XEROX to use the IDEA, and create their own GUI.
FYI, IDEAS can't be patented! Patents can ONLY be applied to created material (ie. digital software, physical objects), or material processes (eg. a new unique way to combine certain materials to create an object, like the creation of Kevlar, which led to a patent war when DuPont changed the solvent in their original process [which was highly carcinogenic] to a safer one, and thereby duplicated a process that was already patented by the AZKO company.)
@DigitalLogin and @YoMommaSoFat please read above!
|Being called a TWAT by @fatturtle is inappropriate and|
not cool. By the way, it was Steve Jobs partner Steve
Wozniak who wrote the early Apple's OS and created a
few things. I'm not knocking Apple. It's the marketing
tactics and proprietary system they use. It had to take
a judge to rule that customers have a right to do
whatever they want with their Apple products.
And @ListentotheMan, Be nice or I'll expose the funny
odd colors underwear you wearing through your MacBook
Webcam, just joking! So much for Apple's security.
Apple have vulnerabilities just like Windows do.
|I apologise for calling you a twat ZerlindaX, but your comment was massively uninformed wasn't it?|
|I'm staring to think that North Korea invented Instagram. As a way of getting food to the people.|

|Does that mean North Korea invented Need For Speed?.. I love that game...|
|Crash1 said "@DigitalLogin and @YoMommaSoFat please read above!"|
Ok, I did read what you wrote, but why mention me when you're confirming exactly what I said?
If you read what I wrote, you'll see that I took the opposite stance of YoMommaSoFat.
Fwiw, I actually owned a NEW early Apple II that came with Integer.
Yeah, I'm that old.
|Remember the Nazi party, another dictatorship when American soldiers went their they found tape recorders which was new discovered technology which some soldiers took back to America. Bing Crosby was then able to record his show so it could be broadcast on the east and west coasts.|

|@fatturtle, apology accepted!|
@Selsley, Actually it was Philips and Sony, lol.
The digital compact disc was invented in the late 1960s by James T. Russell.
Now, I wonder who really did invented the first Ipod and Iphone. That's a
whole different story, lol.
Real the whole story!

|@crash1 wow bro breath, in, out, in out... I think what zerlindaX is trying to get at is the fact that people these days praise apple for inventing EVERYTHING from the sliced bread to the first smartphone. If you look into apples history as crash pointed out Jobs never came up with anything new. All his products were rehashed products with just enough of a twist to not get sued. Such rumors are Apple was the first to make an mp3 player, really? my sony discman played mp3s before anyone even heard the word iPod; not to mention every other mp3 player on the market at the time. Apple created the first smartPhone, tell that to blackberry and every other hand held device that had a gui at the time (funny side note: apple sued a phone company whos product was named "iphone" only to be sued back since that company had the name before Apple lol). Apple invented the tablet with the iPad .. unless you count every other tablet created prior to that including Microsoft tablet in 2000. Samsung copied the iPhone, really? Oh they both have square screens, oh they are both touch gui so is every other device... etc...|
To sum it up, Jobs was ONLY a smart business man who took every opportunity to make a buck even (or especially) if it included stepping on the people who helped him. Dont believe me? Ok why is it Wozniak and every other programmer from Apples beginnings have no monuments in the Apple fan boy clubs? Why is Gates seen as some demon spawn in Apple fanboy eyes?
The Apple company itself has banked on marketing vs creating a strong product for the longest time. Why do you think Apple was in bankruptcy after they wouldn't budge from the iMac series in the 90s? people realized the machines were overpriced for the performance and had no software options to them. Being "Pretty" eventually got old. This is why a 2014 MacBook pro with a freakin Intel Pentium 1 (exaggerating obviously but not by much), 1 gig of ram and no dedicated GPU and a 500gig **5400 RPM ** drive can sell for $2k while a much stronger laptop will go for >$1k. Apple limits its products on purpose because it creates repeat customers! If Apple started pumping out machines with TB's of storage, <8 gigs of memory (with options to expand) and dedicated gpus for a reasonable price (like every other competitor they would lose money in the long run because their customers would re buy every 4 years instead of every 2. Why do you think every smartphone, tablet, laptop come with SD, MsD slots as standard? EXCEPT for Apple products? because when you fill up your 30 gig iPod you need to BUY A NEW ONE.
Not to mention Windows and OSx are just rips off of Linux anyways lol

|So bloody true lazypirate...Operating systems are like clothes and fashion...Didn't know we owed NK so much, huh?? What's next..they invented the wheel as well?? Bloody dumb-a$$e$.|
Windows, *nix and OsX are basically all written in C, MS and Apple are indeed derivatives of Unix. The beauty on *nix is that it doesn't call home every minute of the day telling big brother what you're up to. Thought windows7 was bad? Win8/8.1 even worse. And on it goes. A people of sheep begets a government of wolves...
