China to launch computer operating system by October
Reuters is reporting that China’s state-run media, People’s Post and Telecommunications News, an official trade paper run by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), is reporting the official development.
“We hope to launch a Chinese-made desktop operating system by October supporting app stores,” Ni Guangnan, who heads an official Chinese operating system development alliance, was quoted in press reports as saying.
As ValueWalk reported in May, China banned government use of Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system, a move construed as being due to US National Security Agency spying. In addition to Windows 8 being banned, Microsoft is the subject of an anti-trust investigation in China.
