China has been trying to move away from relying on Microsoft's Windows software for its government, enterprise, and education industries. The Chinese government originally partnered with Ubuntu maker Canonical back in 2013 to create an alternative to Windows, codenamed Kylin. While that initial effort didn't really take off, a new Linux-based operating system dubbed NeoKylin is quickly becoming one of the most popular alternatives to Windows in China.

In the past Microsoft was left "surprised" when the Chinese government announced its plans to ban Windows 8 usage following the end of support for Windows XP. Microsoft has continued to supply Windows 7 to the Chinese government.


Dell is even selling PCs running the software in China, with more than 40 percent of its commercial PC sales shipping with NeoKylin.
