  1. The links provided point to the website, which is currently suspended by its hosting provider. These links should as such be considered as broken.
    Just wanted to report

    • No. If you put some files into Red Star OS, some files will have an extra SHA256 of 31 bytes. This data is enough to store all the important data of your computer, such as timestamps, MAC host addresses, etc. So don’t install Red Star OS on your computer if you don’t have a special need to it (unless you’re using a virtual machine.)
