"China will ban use of Microsoft Corp's new Windows 2000
operating system throughout the government in a bid to support
indigenous software, an official newspaper reported in editions

upstart operating system Linux, the newspaper quoted the
officials as saying."

atomic bomb and launch of its first ballistic missile and the
satellite, it said."
