A new report has appeared on the internet today suggesting that Microsoft is planning to launch a specific version of Windows 8 for those in China. This edition of Windows 8 is expected to be called Windows 8 China edition, similar to professional and home premium, but for those in China.
cnBeta is reporting that Microsoft is planning to launch a China specific version of Windows 8, titled Windows 8 China Edition. This version of Windows 8 will only be sold in China, and is not expected to include any additional features.
This could be a hoax, so believe what you will.
It wouldn’t make much sense for Microsoft to launch a specific version of Windows 8 for one country, it would be easier to just make Windows available in that language, therefore opening up more upgrade option to those in China. As this hasn’t been confirmed by Microsoft, we can only expect this rumour to be false.Further reading: Microsoft, Windows 8
