Microsoft mystified by Chinese governments Windows 8 snub


From V3:
China said it would not allow state machines to run Windows 8 in order to avoid support issues in the future, similar to Windows XP, which has left millions of machines unsupported around the world.

Instead, China is to focus on developing homegrown Linux systems that can be updated on an ongoing basis.

In response Microsoft told V3 that it was "surprised to learn about the reference to Windows 8" in the notice issued by the government, as it has always worked with governments to try to meet their needs.
