China reading its own desktop OS

Written by Nick Farrell

Good-bye Microsoft

China is reading a new operating system which should hit the shops by October.

China wants to help its domestic industry catch up with imported systems such as Microsoft's Windows and Google's mobile operating system Android and getting its own OS which is free of the backdoors of Imperialist western software is seen as the way forward.

The operating system would first appear on desktop devices and later extend to smartphone and other mobile devices.

The news was announced in the People's Post and Telecommunications News, an official trade paper run by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).

The operating system will be supported by app stores, the newspaper reported.

Apparently, the goal is to replace Windows domestically within one to two years and mobile operating systems within three to five years.

This explains why in May, China banned government use of Windows 8, Microsoft's latest operating system, but not Windows 7.

In March last year, China said that Google had too much control over China's smartphone industry via its Android mobile operating system and has discriminated against some local firms.
