China wants its own operating system and only use local hardware and software

Chinese OS

Two Chinese companies plan to create a new company in which the objective of creating a new operating system, the two parties interested in it are China Standard Software Co., Ltd and Tianjin Kylin Information Ltd. Co, which have known ties to the government.

Tianjin Kylin Information Ltd. Co is the creator of Kylin, an operating system based on FreeBSD for the Chinese Army and first introduced in 2007, while China Standard Software Co. Ltd is behind NeoKylin, a product of a partnership with the National University of Defense Technology. NeoKylin is based on the Linux kernel and it is the more popular of the two operating systems with versions for desktops, servers and embedded systems under commercial and free licenses.

The new company to be created will be in charge of the development of the new operating system, technology decisions, marketing, brand management, finance and sales. LThe two companies will sign a formal agreement in the future. The current versions of Kylin and NeoKylin will form the basis of the new operating system.

In which eThe new operating system will combine the logo current operating system Kylin and the logo of the operating system NeoKylin. The two companies have yet to release the name of the new operating system.

All this movement was generated because, in China has created some incitement to the use of local technologies. In fact, government offices were asked toand eliminate all foreign designed hardware and software.

Since I eat remember, in the middle of the year, the news of which the chinese army plans to stop using windows as your operating system.

In general terms, the maneuver is destined to get out of the dependency of American technologies in the middle of the trade war between the United States and China.

Since mid-November, the administration Trump has published a new decree that extends the grace period by 90 days (now until February 2020) during which it authorizes US companies to do business with Huawei.

Thus, American tech companies got the green light from Washington to resume business with the smartphone maker, but it may be too late as the company is currently building smartphones without an American chip.

According to the comments of many Huawei's latest Mate 30 presented in september It did not contain a chip made in America. Thus, the Trump administration's decree in mid-May would only have caused Huawei to make progress in reducing its dependence on US companies.

It is in terms of software that the Chinese giant continues to struggle, well, in fact, Huawei introduced HarmonyOS (its operating system) in August as an alternative to Android from American Google.

In a recently published information note, the Chinese manufacturer announces its intention to equip more of its products with its operating system. However, it appears that the brand's smartphones, computers and tablets, which are among its most popular products, are not affected.

Therefore, everything suggests that Google's mobile operating system and its services Gmail, Google Pay, Play Store, etc.) will still be present next year on smartphones and tablets produced by Huawei.

At the end, the only thing Trump and anti-China policy has done is make this superpower rush things to leave dependence on American products and all those affected by this trade war.

By the base part of the operating system what is planned to be created it is not yet reported whether it will be written from scratch or will have some basis, either FreeBSD or Linux. Although China also wants to put Linux aside, despite the fact that Russia has opted for it, as such is the example of Astra linux that will be even on mobile devices of Russian politicians and military.

    I don't understand why the article says that Kylin is based on freeBSD the Chinese operating system is based on Ubuntu and is also part of the "taste of Ubuntu"

    It seems to me a ridiculous way to transform Linux into a political tool, I understand the movements of the West in legal terms but that is neither Linux nor anything, but a people's unix: D
