China + Linux = Yay!

A large spike in MS's marketing scheme? According to the article this blog links to, China is adopting linux on a fairly large scale

According to ’s Ministry of Information Industry (MII), almost 70 percent of all software purchases last year were of Linux-based products. Meanwhile, provincial governments, installed 45,000 desktops with Linux operating systems.

Now I wonder, what the MS reaction to this would be? China sure as heck isn't a tiny slice of market the way they're making Korea out to be.

And on a side note, Korea is also pushing for linux
