Microsoft's Windows 10 has been around for home users in China for a while despite the strict local laws and censorship. Now the time has arrived for a special edition that targets the government agencies and state-owned enterprises to show up, especially since we heard about it around a year ago.

According to Microsoft Greater China's CEO Alain Crozier, who spoke to China Daily, "Microsoft Corp has developed the first version of a China-customized Windows 10 operating system and is now in a good position to serve local governments and State-owned enterprises." The same source also reveals that three large enterprise customers have tested the operating system that Microsoft developed with China Electronics Technology Group Corp, a state-owned company.

The details about the new Windows 10 variant are scarce, Crozier stating that extensive work has been done to make it "secure and controllable." Microsoft has over 70,000 corporate customers for Azure, while last year this figure stood at 65,000.

The Windows 10 version for Chinese home users comes with Baidu.com as the default search engine and homepage, since Microsoft shut down MSN China almost a year ago, following a deal with Baidu.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
