China to Create Linux-based National OS

The Chinese government announced it will begin work on a national PC OS based on Ubuntu, one of the world’s most popular free, Linux-based Operating Systems. ‘Ubuntu Kylin’ is part of a long-term plan to create a domestically focussed OS, wean users off Microsoft and Apple systems, and promote the use of free and open-source software in China. Development will take place in a Beijing lab staffed by engineers from China and UK company Canonical, the creators of Ubuntu.
