Microsoft has now created a custom version of Windows 10 for the Chinese Government, which is said to address the security concerns that China has traditionally had with Windows-based OS'.
 
This new version of Windows was designed by China's CTEC (China Electronics Technology Group), delivering what was previously seen an impossible, a version of the OS that doesn't spy on its users and is secure enough to satisfy the Chinese Government. 
 
In recent year China's government has banned the use of Windows 8 due to security concerns and has heavily invested in a custom version of Linux Canonical, codenamed Kyjin. While this effort has created the Linux-based OS NeoKylin, it has failed to suit the needs of the Chinese government or gain any real popularity.

China is a huge market, one which in recent years has been a huge problem for Microsoft due to high rates of piracy and their disapproval of the Chinese government. This new development will help ensure that Microsoft gains additional market share in the region and the number of paying customers. 

Now many will wonder how different this new version of Windows 10 is from its western counterparts, as a large number of PC users would certainly be interested in a version of Windows 10 without telemetry.

Yup, I agree... In all honesty though, I don't really get what all of this "spying" is going to do for companies like Microsoft, Facebook etc?. What are they spying/collecting really and at what purpose/what are they doing with all this information they secretly gather from their users?...Quote

They barely take any information. Certainly less than all the other big companies. They use this data to improve there services and in the case of Google/FB/Twitter/social media/Amazon in general, they use it to make money off targeted ads and other things... MS should be the least of your worries.Quote

Right, so from what I understand by your post now... They just collect certain data that is targeted for ads?. Not like personal information, what you have on your PC, what your watching, how much porn you've got etc etc. I guess you get where I'm getting at here?...Quote

Microshaft know what's on your system they also get just as much data as Google does they also have a crap ton of IP address that are always phoning home.

People trying to say oh Microshaft collects less data than Google, Twitter & Facepoo there full of crap.

I people try and use this version of Windows and Microshaft finds out they can easy screw up your Windows install and if that happens i'll be laughing my ass off when it does.Quote
