"It is now government policy in China to use the Linux operating system across all government ministries, according to Jon "Maddog" Hall, the executive director of Linux International, a non-profit group that distributes information about the open-source operating system."
"At the opening of the LinuxWorld Asia conference here today, Hall said he was told this by China's Minister of Information Industry, Wu Jichuan, during a visit Hall made to Beijing in July."
"Hall received a strong signal of support from the Chinese authorities for the open-source Linux OS, he said."
