    This is going to be fun. Huawei was doing a lot of silicon desgn as HiSilicon.

    This most likely will slow down arm push into servers. Of course what instruction set does HiSilicon developers go with in future.

Although at a hotel there the PC had Windows XP, and a company I visited was on Windows 7 still.

      I don't know if it happens in western countries, but one thing that really annoyed me in China was how it apparently had no laws against advertising/marketing spamming your number(chinese sim card). Lots of SMS and some calls, locals were just used to it. I otherwise enjoyed the stay, in the city it wasn't too different from those I'm used to in the western world(advertising on the streets can be pretty bad/noisy too, some street vendors have a megaphone attached to a playback device on loop). I went to a tech expo and while I recognized a lot of the stuff companies were promoting as not all that innovative/unique, there was some of it, of interest was a school for children/teenagers focused on teaching innovation/invention, the students had come up with some cool stuff, I just played games at that age!
      I believe you are thinking about Red Star OS, that's based in N Korea. Deepin is produced in China though.

          Uh you yourself in this very thread, right before my post talk about their mindset there. Simple fact is you produce in China your tech is going to get stolen, and the Chinese are completely reliant on this as their form of tech progression. So don't throw this "It's not the 80s" crap at me.

              Stating again the same stupid racist cold-war bs does not make it any more true.
              They did jump-start by copying, and there is still a lot of copying, especially in the lower-cost markets. But they are not reliant on copying anymore.

              They have amassed enough to be able to do research and improvements on their own.

                Finally something we agree haha
