Seeing how popular Windows 10 has become and that it is a free upgrade for most users, it has still not managed to reach Microsoft Corporation’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) expectations. This should explain why the company is doing everything it can to convince users to make the switch. Additionally, to also improve its presence in China, the company is working with the government to release a special edition of Windows 10.
The version of Windows 10 for China is referred to as ‘Windows 10 Specially-provided Edition’. However, no details have been given about the OS and what changes will be made to it. But what is known is that it will come without a few games and will give users greater administrator privileges.
The China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) is assisting Microsoft to integrate new administrator controls into the OS. Moreover, the CETC has signed on with Microsoft for this venture in return for 51% stake in Windows 10 Specially-provided Edition, which is more specifically a controlled and safe OS that will give users greater power and allow administrators to track users’ activities at the same time.
All in all, the move will help Microsoft increase the number of users utilizing its latest OS, but chances are that the company will have to release separate updates for this version of Windows 10, which will be difficult to pull off. But then again, its partnership with the CETC should be able to help the company overcome this problem, seeing that the CETC has a larger stake in the venture.
