Chinese Government Bans Windows 8 In Their Offices

Support Number For Windows

Windows 8, the much-awaited operating system from Microsoft, was released last year and is an operating system that contains many new features and characteristics. However, in order to promote Windows 8 OS, the tech giant has stopped giving support to Windows XP operating system and it was not well greeted by users of Windows XP. The decision of ending support to Windows XP had a disastrous effect on the XP users especially in China. Because of the security concerns and lack of support to the older versions of Windows OS, the Chinese government has decided to ban the installation of the latest OS in their offices.

A major portion of the computer users and the government offices employ this 13-year-old operating system for professional as well as home purposes. According to the information from Windows support number, with the end of support, Windows XP computers will no longer receive any security updates or patches, which will ultimately cause the system to be inefficient. However, many third party companies have promised to provide Windows XP support. The state owned Xinhua news agency reports, “The Chinese government obviously cannot ignore the risks of running OS without guaranteed technical support. It has moved to avoid the awkwardness of being confronted with a similar situation again in future if it continues to purchase computers with foreign OS.”

What about Linux?

According to the reports by Xinhua news agency, an advisory has been issued by the Central Government Procurement Centre, which states that the organizations can buy any tablets, desktops, laptops of any operating system other than Windows 8. This decision by the Chinese government will be a huge setback for Microsoft, as they are the largest buyer of software in the country of China. In China, Windows XP constitutes about 70 percent of the market share and the authorities have warned the organizations about the possible threats of running an OS that do not have regular security patches or updates. However, rather than going for the expensive OS upgrade, the Chinese government will opt for some alternative solutions.

These all resulted in the introduction of domestically made operating system like StartOS or the recently released China OS or Ubuntu Kylin. These operating systems are mainly based on the Linux kernel. Moreover, there are many developments going on even more projects based on Linux. However, when looking at the past, these open source alternatives had very little success in a country like China.

Users Ignoring Windows XP End Of Support Warnings

         Support For Windows

Most of the Windows users will be familiar with the name Windows XP, which is the most successful operating system that Microsoft has ever produced. Even 12 years after its release, its popularity didn’t go down as it holds the second spot in the PC market share according to the studies conducted by NetApplications. Actually, Windows XP is the operating system that completely changed the feel and look of Windows OS, which is being widely used in many businesses, colleges, organizations etc.

Even though Windows XP is so popular among the computer users, Microsoft has decided to end the support given to this versatile OS. As a result, the Windows XP users will no longer receive any security patches or updates. This does not mean that you will not be able to run Windows XP computers, but the OS will be very prone to virus attacks, making the job of the cyber criminals easy. Thus, it is necessary for you to find a solution for this by moving on to the latest OS or buying a new PC with Windows 8 OS.

The studies conducted by the company in January suggest that Windows XP constitutes nearly 26 percent of market share, which is behind Windows 7, which holds the top position with 49 percent. However, when comparing the market share of the latest OS, i.e. Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, Windows XP lies far ahead in the race.

Studies suggest that in the month of January, Windows XP has a 29 percent of market share, which rose to 23 percent in the month of February, but its number was lowered in the month of April by 1.4 percent.
