0

Microsoft has made a new deal with the Chinese Government and will offer a special version of The Windows 10 and C&M Information Technologies will be the company that will take care of the license and will optimize the operating system. This version of Windows 10 will be installed on the computers of the Chinese Government’s agencies and other companies that are under its jurisdiction.

Microsoft is collaborating with China Electronics Technology Group and they will propose the final version of Windows to the Chinese Government, hoping that it will be approved. The software will include an antivirus program which will be selected by the Chinese Government, while China Electronics Technology Group, which is the joint venture company, will have two tasks: to provide product activation, patch management, deployment services and product support locally, and to develop other versions of the software based on the feedback about user requirements.

Microsoft already made the Chinese users happy, as the personal assistant called Cortana supports voice commands and queries in Chinese language, and they also have a forecast of expected levels of air pollution in their area.

Windows 10 was officially launched on July 29, after the operating system was unveiled in October last year and Microsoft has offered a series of Preview Builds to the users who signed up for the Insider program. The OS came as a free upgrade for the existing Windows 7 or 8 users who bought a license and some of the new features that have been included are the Start Menu (its return, actually), Windowed Windows Store apps, Cortana, the Edge browser, Virtual desktops/Task View, Action Center, the Xbox app, Continuum, unified settings etc.

The users who don’t like the new Windows 10 can roll back to the previous version within 30 days since the date of upgrading. However, all the changes and files that have been made/created while the computer was running on Windows 10 will be lost, so the users are advised to make a data backup before starting the downgrade process.
