And another round of "let's get MSFT to make a big
R&D investment in our country" begins.

  China will move to Linux by 2020 in
  'de-Windowsifying' process
  Chinese government advisor invents new word 
  http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2378820/china-will-move-to-linux-by-2020-in-de-windowsifying-process

  15% of Windows OS to be replaced per year in China

(Maybe the result will be to relocate Windows
development to MSFT Shanghai. The PRC gets a domestic
OS, MSFT sells licenses, and the only damage is to
the carpal tunnels and hand-wringing muscles of US
media people.  Who are going to be replaced by content
bots anyway.)

It's not a direct way to make money with Linux,
but money is being made because of Linux here, so
yay open source business?
