China is still way behind the US in many areas and in the information space the gap is particularly wide.

It appears that China is doing something  about it.

Foremost, it has openly admitted that the gap is too wide and the lack of domestic development in this space too important to ignore.

Recently China banned Windows8 and it probably realizes that China is too dependent on information technology from America which, in the age of cold war and development in Russia, is detrimental to China’s national security.

An article from qq.com discusdes the pending  release of China’s own version  of desktop software to replace Windows XP for business users.

We’ll see how much progress China  can make in this area.

How much will MSFT’s profit be affected in 2 to 3 years?
