According to (IANS) report, China is in the pursuit of launching its homegrown OS operating system by the month of October. China initiated this launch after the global concerns about the rising monopoly enquiry of Microsoft and the US surveillance, reported Xinhua, in Beijing.
The new operating system will be first seen on desktop devices and later venture out to smartphones and other associated mobile devices, said Ni Guangnan - belonging to the Chinese Academy of Engineering.
Ni said they are hoping to launch this OS as a Chinese-made desktop operating system that has the capability of supporting a variety of app stores as well. Ni is the head at the OS development alliance facility. He informed the People’s Post and Telecommunications News in a report earlier today.
Ni also added that China’s technological research is based on Android mainly and hence, with more than a dozen mobile operating system developers in the country they have no independent intellectual property rights. The country is still facing problems in the program which includes several developers and lack of research funds drawn to different directions.
Ni informed the news report that their project has been possible because of the end of Windows XP and government ban on Windows 8 OS procurement. The project’s success will only shine if they compete with Apple, Microsoft, and Google operating systems.
China is now working on improving its domestic industry to meet international standards such as Google’s mobile operating system Android and Microsoft\'s Windows.
