Red China, Redmond collide, part II


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.
