China's Linux desktop market booms

| The Chinese government's antipiracy movement has had an effect. After the 
| central government published two regulations last year to force its 
| departments and local governments to stop using pirated software, the 
| government has increased its spending on low-cost Linux desktop software. 
| Last year, the antipiracy movement focused mainly on senior province and city 
| governments, but this year it filtered into the junior village and town 
| governments as well -- areas that previously relied on pirated software. 
| Currently, the government is responsible for purchasing accounts for more 
| than one quarter of China's Linux desktop software market, and the homegrown 
| Red Flag Linux leads the government market.

| But healthy demand from enterprise clients means the region is likely to far 
| outstrip total revenue growth these two years, and Red Hat hopes to capture 
| that by opening another eight testing centres in mainland China within the 
| next six months, Hu told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday.
