Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This could potentially be quite big for Ubuntu and Linux in general. Canonical and the Chinese government have announced a collaboration to build a version of Ubuntu specifically for the Chinese market, which will become the reference architecture for standard operating systems in the country.

For the life of me, I never understood why any country little alone one the size of China didn't make full use of any of the opensource OS's. Then take any of the license money (ok, those that do actually pay) and develop the missing applications needed. Why pay all that money to outside vendors when you could keep all the money and working IP within the country.
