Most Chinese computers had a LINUX  OS? mmmmmmmmmm Can't imagine how anyone could ever get such an impression. Windows is very much king here, and as others have indicated you're probably best served in China using a computer with this Mark of the Beast upon it.

actually, a lot of computers "ship" with Linux as an OS because the new rules as of last year state that no computer can be sold without a legit copy of an OS. As soon as they "sell" them, they install a borrowed copy of windoze on it!
Some of the ads I've seen in Beijing lately are even advertising computers with MS Dos as the operating system asasasasas ahahahahah
alors régressons fatalement, eternellement. Des débutants, avec la peur comme exutoire à l'ignorance et Alzheimer en prof d'histoire de nos enfances!
