Beijing: A new Chinese-developed operating system is reportedly set to enter the market and compete with popular systems Android and iOS. This China made operating system was developed collaboration between Shanghai Liantong (a network communication company) & the ISCAS aka Institute Of Software at the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The source code of the China Operating System will be open and it’s Linux-based. The Chinese government wanted to break the monopoly of the foreign software and offer better localisation of the services like languages and cloud support.
According to Chinadaily, China Operating System includes applicability to a wide range of computer-based hardware and not just smartphones, and it is also touted to fix a range of existing programming bugs and errors.
A promo video of COS uploaded on the internet revealed that variants and features of operating system were very like Android operating system. China’s online community also questioned how COS was able to launched with 100,000 apps, with some summizing that the Chinese platform was “just an OS based on the open source Linux and a strong imitation of Android system”.
China’s previous attempts at making a homegrown operating system, however, have not made headway. All the top smartphone makers in China rely heavily on developing Android-based phones. At the same time, Windows remains the dominant OS on PCs used in the nation.
