Windows 7: Beijing leans on Microsoft to maintain Windows XP support

Beijing leans on Microsoft to maintain Windows XP support

The Chinese government has urged Microsoft to extend support for Windows XP in order to boost Beijing’s anti-piracy efforts and head off a potentially huge security threat.

Yan Xiaohong, deputy director of China’s National Copyright Administration, met Microsoft and other software companies in a bid to put some pressure on, according to Techweb.

He apparently claimed that ending support for Windows XP would create serious security risks for many machines in the PRC, with opportunistic cyber criminals looking to exploit vulnerabilities in the software once security updates end on April 8th 2014.

If MS had any sense of humor ( besides W/8 ) they could say XP has no security zone.

The PRC steal more than they buy so I don't see a problem.
They will just steal Windows 7 and go on their happy little way.
