China to standardize on Ubuntu

The current stats of free OS usage in China show very small penetration. I hope it makes Ubuntu Kylin as available in products as we currently see with Android.

Finally, the Chinese government is NOT a monolithic entity - far far from it. This sounds like one department, in one ministry, in central government, thinks Linux is a good idea and wants to help improve it for Chinese needs.

The Chinese government is humongous, and this is just some project in who knows what kind of department.
The apparent department is the China Software and Integrated Chip Promotions Centre (CSIP). I cannot find a single link on Google about this organization that is not connected with the Canonical announcement.
This isn't going anywhere.
