China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) Wants Users to Switch to Domestically-Produced Operating Systems

According to China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, 70% of Chinese non-mobile computers (the kind that are plugged into walls and don't fit into your pocket or onto the bridge of your nose) are still using the Windows XP operating system.

For now.

As reported on CCTV on May 10th. 2014 (excerpt above), citing security risks,  Chief Engineer and Ministry spokesman Zhang Feng wants users to convert to a domestic product.

This move follows an announcement in mid-January 2014 about a similar state-backed move to a Chinese mobile operating system known as COS (China Operating System).
