I live in China and use only Ubuntu Linux and Firefox on all my computers. No problems 99.9% of the time. Just an occasional website these days that does not follow international standards -but rather old IE technology. Yes most people use Windows but Apple computer stores are proliferating all over! Linux is sure to follow. Also UMPC's and others notebooks are often being sold without a Windows OS or with Linux. These are from ASUS, ACER, LENOVO, HP and others. To say Linux is not happening on the desktop in China is simply very untrue. Software is political and change will be gradual. Linux saves me from security hassles too. Chinese networks are full of malware. From and Ubuntu WIFI enabled notebook crusin here in China!
