FTFA: "In China, you do everything you have to to completely submit if the authorities investigate you. The government is saying, 'We might be more lenient if you don't resist, otherwise we'll be tough'."

Translation: Microsoft failed to remit its "tribute" to the Chinese government.

Microsoft. The Chinese are easily one of the most corrupt people on the planet when it comes to business.

It's not a game of winning and losing, it's a game of right and wrong. Whichever one is right, that's whom I'm pulling for.

This. Beijing is moving towards a European post-Enlightenment kind of rule of law thing, but a lot of the outcomes in legislature and court still depend upon having the right "money losing" partnership with the right politician's company.

Don't steal from the Government; They hate the competition.

The Chinese investigating Microsoft on anti-trust.  Yeah, well I guess Microsoft does have a total monopoly on computer operating systems, what with the 17 copies of Windows 7 that were legally purchased in the country.

I don't know, but the headline (which is the actual headline from the linked article) reads somewhat like badly translated Chinese

You'd think Linux would have already thrived in a place like China, all things considered.

//one think the linux community has been terrible at is considering all things
///still waiting for that really easy to use linux desktop distro to replace (or just supplement) windows... waiting
//no, no one wants to learn the goddamned command line garbage. no. no. no. no. no.
/no.

Do you think the Chinese government would be pleased with the idea of an OS that can be secured and obscured?

Since when? Seriously. 'Cause they aren't spilling toxins into rivers and refusing to divulge what they dumped, they aren't pumping stuff into the ground and potentially poisoning the aquifer and then pushing laws that don't let people know what they're using, and they aren't trying to create a monopoly by merging with their nearest competitor. So what makes them so corrupt? Seriously, I have no idea and I want to know.

There are plenty of easily obtainable alternatives to any and all Microsoft products if you aren't ascared of the horrible terrible no good idea of maybe having to learn a little about something different.
