ya, in HK a lot of people are still using Windows 98.

Linux is gaining popularity in mainland China as programmers worldwide are finding ways to make Linux easier to use and install. China is strongly in support of Linux because it relieves dependence on an American company (Microsoft).

Also, Linux more stable than Windows.

and free.

I use Windows XP (shame on me...) because I'm unable to use linux, but everybody around me (informaticians, I recognise) are using linux. (linux very popular because of what have been said before)

Anyway, I have no clue of what is used in the common chinese family who have the computer equipment...

i'm also curious about what the common chinese family is using. some people refuse to touch a PC, some are slowly using it for stuff like financial stuff and tracing family roots...

this was a very good question...
