Sounds strange, but according to The Register:

China has kicked off a development programme intended to produce a home-grown operating system with equivalent functionality to Windows 98, and with compatibility with Office 2000 and Word, reports The People's Daily this morning.

Have you heard about the WINDOWSORUS ???

The " Windowsorus " is among endangered species today. It is the descriptive name of the user of the old versions of Microsoft Windows OS, such as Win 3.11, Windows 95, 98/SE and ME. I coined the term recently (Aug 2008) because I think it nicely suggests what it is : The stubborn user, like me, who refuses to go on with newer versions of MS Windows and sticks with yesteryear's software, such as Win 98, etc. Thus, I can safely assert I am a sort of rebel against the big-profit corporation, one who says NO to the big money-making machine. I am a Windowsorus prehistoricus.
