China excludes Windows 8 from government computers

BEIJING, May 20 (Xinhua) -- China has announced that it will forbid the use of the Windows 8 operating system (OS) in new government computers,
a move to ensure computer security after the shutdown of Windows XP.

All desktops, laptops and tablet PCs to be purchased by central state organs must be installed with OS other than Windows 8,
according to an online statement by the Central Government Procurement Center.

The measure only targets computers used by government offices, while the personal computer market is expected to stay unaffected.

Currently, most government computers run Windows XP, which has a 70-percent market share in China.
But Microsoft ended support for this 13-year-old system on April 8, arousing safety concerns and appeals for domestically designed OS.

Can you blame them with all the NSA/CIA backdoors it must be loaded up with? Saw this coming 8 months ago.
