    read the story over at /.

    just the ability to have better chinese/japanese/korean character support would be a good incentive.

    one of the reasons i bought Mac/OS X is because of its superb Japanese character support, straight out of the box.

    Yes, why don't they just go with Mac OS X. Why try to rebuild almost perfection!

    Most people don't own macs.....;)

    But this is good news in a way. Competition is exactly what MS needs. And coming from Asia, that will have a huge user base (China).

    D :D

    I wonder if Bill is downloading in his pants yet...usually when those Asians do something, it ends up being small, efficient, and never breaks. All you need is to chip away at a few bricks at the base of the castle to bring the walls down...let's see if this will add a few more chips to Microsoft's castle.

    Why don't they just go with Mac OS X instead of building their own operating system? Anyways this id good news and I hope this diminishes Microsoft's Monopoly and market share...

    Maybe Apple should slip them Marklar, there problem would be solved without the massive purchase of hardware.
