China To Replace All Windows Machines?

Posted on by Ryan

A report from Ecns.cn has surfaced that claims that China plans to do a “de-Windowsifying” process to replace all computers that run Windows with a country-endorsed Linux OS by the year 2020. This was confirmed by Ni Guangnan of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. 15 OS developers in China have supported this idea and are working very closely with the Chinese government to rid their reliance of Windows.

 

This has actually been in the process in the country since the NSA/Snowden reports were leaked. China has already banned the use of all Windows 8 OS on all government computers.
