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.

I've wondered those things many years.

I think that part of the reason is they want the people in their country to know how to use the software the other people in other countries use. So they can sell hardware, software and services to the other countries. Basically they desire interoperability more.

An other part is probably: risk. They might think it hasn't proven itself.

The biggest problem is probably the people making the decisions don't know the technology.
