Microsoft says it will continue to offer Windows 7 to Chinese government


From Neowin:
The announcement of the ban of Windows 8 on China's government PCs came just a few weeks after they revealed that it would continue to use Windows XP, even though the nearly 13-year-old OS will no longer receive any security patches and updates from Microsoft. Windows XP is believed to be installed on over half of all PCs in China, mainly because most people use pirated copies of the OS.
