Not really a problem, just wondering why you would post an item about Windows 8 in a Linux forum.

If you click the link you will see it is from linuxbsdos and that the Chinese are in the process of making there own Linux distro: Apart from purchase restrictions for central government offices, China will focus on the development of its own OS based on Linux, a move which An Yang, a security expert with Qihoo 360 Technology, said was a necessity although progress has been disappointing.

Qi Xiangdong, president of Qihoo 360, said this is a great opportunity for Chinese IT companies to nurture their own OS.

Happy now!
