If governmet is involved in pushing technology, it ought to be failure in long term.

Will consumer like that? Will they abandon or force to abandon iOS and Android? May be little difficult.

If Chinese governmet has security issue for this forced COS implemantation, other countries should use same logic and ban all devices with COS.

Good way to stifle innovation

They have done this before, e.g. with their DTV standard and cellular TD-SCDMA, at best with mixed results. This emphasis on the government doing everyone's thinking for them seems so strange by today's western standards. My thinking is, this works almost like a regulating mechanism, preventing technological innovation from flourishing in China.

They got Google OS free and they want to isolate their Chinese users from the rest of the world with their own OS. This a reason. Not technology but politics.

It could stiffle inovation but it doesn't have to. The Chinese certainly have a significant university system they can tap into.

Security is getting to be a bigger and biger problem in the world. If it's not the NSA it's organized crime. I think all apps should be source code only and compiled by the app store. Using subroutines, or modules resident on app store system should be highly encouraged.

And a model that relies primarily on ad revenue invites corruption.

Les, it stretches credulity to think that any civil servant, of any country, would be the best choice at guiding computer OS innovation. I'm not saying that China doesn't have excellent universities. I'm instead saying that the potential of graduates from those universities will be throttled back, when government bureaucrats are the ones doing the thinking and the strategizing, for matters such as these.

I will be wishing them good luck. The fact is that even if this OS does well in China, they are covering a lot considering their population. iOS and Android need some great competitions

Except when it is Chinese govt. They have invented a new model of state capitalism and they have great results to show for it

It could be a way to control and manage their citizens. Nevertheless, the govt has demonstrated an appetite to conquer outside territories. The boldness of China in Africa is the only reason the continent is moving forward. Where Americans and Europeans are modelling risks, Chinese just go and build

@Bert, Les...I remember reading somewhere that the Chinese have a lot of engineers in their government.    Maybe the west could take a leaf out of their book....

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
