China To Develop Linux Based OS To Cope Up With The Shutdown Of Windows XP

After the shutdown of Windows XP, China is focusing to develop an OS based on Linux. As per news reported in Xinhua, the chief engineer of ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China, Zhang Feng said that the ministry will boost its support to develop such an OS.

Support for the 13 year old Windows XP has been ended by Microsoft from 8th April and advised users to upgrade to Windows 8 or if necessary get a new PC.
Windows XP is still being run in almost 70 percent personal computers in China and also in the telecommunication sectors.
Zhang said that this shutdown will bring risks the basic telecommunication networks of China and threaten its overall security.
Chinese internet service providers like Kingsoft, Sogou, Tencent and other had said in February that they would provide technical assistance for upgrading systems from Windows XP and also guard against risks.
Zhang has advised users of Windows XP to install shield software made in China to keep away any online attacks or information leakages.
Linux has an estimated market share of less than 1.5 percent, OS X has about 8 percent and Windows has nearly 91 percent market share worldwide.

The Linux OS is assembled under the model of free and open source software development and distribution and it is a leading OS on mainframe computers, servers and super computers.
