Windows 7: Microsoft gives up on charging for Windows in China

As for the language interface -- it's quite easy to have most of the OS in another language - for example I have Office 10 and Windows 7 Icelandic Language interface packs - these install on top of say a Base English version and while not exactly equal to having windows 100% in the target language - it covers about 90% of it -- more than enough even if you DON'T speak English or whatever.


Those are official language packs released by MS themselves - not any kind of hacks or packs created by third parties. If MS never releases a Chinese language pack for Win10, then there won't be any.


Unlike in USA or Europe, you can buy laptops without any OS in Asian countries. That's the root cause behind large scale piracy in China.

Lol, who needs W10, when XP is clearly superior. Asians aren't as dumb as us Westerners. Good luck trying to get users to switch from XP to 10 (via pirating 7) no matter how FREE the upgrade is.

This from a proud XP user who sees no use for any OS based on the Vista NT 6.x kernel (Vista/7/8.1/10/11?). Nothing these "modern" OSes can do that XP can't do better!

Hmm, any minority report is welcome. But I think you overestimate the capabilities of XP. But in one point you are right - the Chinese are certainly adventurous. The made an XP phone.
