Canonical Collaborates With Chinese For Ubuntu Kylin
Phoronix: Canonical Collaborates With Chinese For Ubuntu Kylin
For those that didn't hear already, Canonical is collaborating with the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (the Chinese government) to develop Kylin, a new Chinese operating system based upon Ubuntu...
a Kylin by any other other name... would be welcome
Is this initiative meant to be a replacement for NeoKylin (Linux-based), which itself was more or less a replacement for the old Kylin (which was FreeBSD-based, and not to be confused with another OS named Kylin, which is also Linux-based)? Or is the CPC just not good at coming up with new names? Coming next... Mechakylin.
Hope it happens something real
I've read before about collaborations with governments and it often feels more like talk and nothing real being done.
Reality seems to be that most Chinese just run pirated Windows XP instead.
Also, I hope it is not just a one-way collaboration, I hope the the collaboration leads to the Chinese committing patches upstream and improving upstream.
