"The new system will initially be available only for desktop computers, and later it can be installed on smartphones and other mobile devices, said the expert of Chinese Academy of engineering Nor Guannan - leading development team for the new OS. We intend to compete with Microsoft, Apple and Google.

This is not the first attempt of China to abandon software created by foreign companies. Development of new types of proprietary operating systems accelerated in China after the release of information about the American secret program of electronic surveillance, code-named PRISM.

While China failed to create an OS that would be really popular among the population. Experts believe that the transition of Chinese consumers on alternative OS prevents a number of established habits, including the desire to use a set of your favourite programmes, which you can't always find on a Chinese OS.
