A class X student of Little Flower School, Guwahati, Assam Afreed Islam has invented an operating system called ReVo Book. This operating system is installed in a microchip and has the features of Linux, Apple and Microsoft Word software packages. He claimed that the new operating system that he has created would make life much easier for computer users.
The product was formally launched in Guwahati yesterday. His invention was patented at the Calcutta-based Intellectual Property Office and was subsequently published in the Official Patent Journal on December 13 last year.
Afreed said “I have myself experienced several problems while working on existing computing systems like Microsoft Word and Linux. This delayed my work. So I decided to create an improved version of computing system that would help people work for longer hours in a faster and uninterrupted manner. With the guidance of my father, I started working on ReVo Book.”
“ReVo Book offers an independent platform where Microsoft Word, Apple and Linux software packages can be operated simultaneously. Besides, the microchip also doubles as a storage device and is four times faster and easy to carry than the traditional hard discs which tend to lose its efficiency in five years. The microchip has a storage capacity of 64GB. This operating system is completely virus free and I can challenge that no one can create a virus for it,” said Afreed, a resident of Hatigaon.
