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.

This is a bit of a coup for Canonical. I wonder why the Chinese govt. went with a foreign company when they could have gone with red flag linux.

Ubuntu have the financial backing and infrastructure.
China(which I hate referring to as if its single entity) can allow all the legwork to be done by ubuntu and if ever they dont want to continue working with them directly, fork. Its the ideal situation.
