re: China to build standard OS around Ubuntu

"The government always want to handle everything, including all the technologies, by their own." In china the general public is short sighted, short disciplined and can't do any serious long term R&D. CCP is the cream of chinese folks with outstanding moral and IQ. ie president Xi and Co. they could handle A-bombs, space projects etc. so when it comes to OS, the general chinese only idea is how to crack it, they never bother to invent one. the task has to be on gvt 's shoulder...

Based on my knowledge of China. The purpose of this project is to develop a OS of China own, not for distributions for world-wise popularity. The government always want to handle everything, including all the technologies, by their own. Because they think using others' products makes their system vulnerable to the spy software, or heavily relayed follow-up services from others. This is weird. But it's the truth. Initially, they want to build an OS from zero, which is failed. As a result, they try to taking advantage of the open source property of Ubuntu. So for a ordinary user of Ubuntu, this new values nothing.

"I really wouldn't trust an OS developed by any government to reside on my computer." Concur, for the reasons you give and then some. However, as we saw in recent posts, the Chinese don't generally seem to share this healthy distrust for government.

It's not clear, but does this mean that their work on the OS will become part of the Ubunto distribution that anyone else downloads? I really wouldn't trust an OS developed by any government to reside on my computer. Government's have their place, and I'm more of a fan of mine than any other, but to a large degree, even the best government is a necessary annoyance that should not be in the software business. I'm not just talking about the potential for hidden spyware. In the case of the US, my biggest concern would be for the quality of the product. Governments don't have a great track record producing quality products at a low cost. Of course, hidden spying capability would definitely be a big concern.
