Red China, Redmond collide, part II

— 12:09 AM on January 10, 2000

We reported earlier that China may ban Windows 2000, and some news outlets later reported that the story wasn't true. However, this one isn't over by a long shot, according to this Mercury Center report. (Thanks to the Maizel man for the link.) Although claims of a Win2K ban seem not to bolstered by hard evidence, there's plenty of reason to believe the Chinese--and the red Chinese government, in particular--aren't pleased with Redmond. Among the Chinese officials' concerns: security.

Microsoft would probably give its left arm to keep its presence in this huge, emerging market, however, so I expect this one is far from over.
