Linux PenguinIt’s a “de-Windowsifying movement”

Most of the mainstream angst directed towards Windows 8 and 8.1 in the U.S. has to do with the Modern UI and little things like the lack of a Start menu. But while hopes are high that Windows 10 will be the OS everyone wanted Windows 8 to be, China’s concerns run much deeper than the UI. As such, China reportedly plans to undergo a “de-Windowsifying” process in which its systems will be move to a state-endorsed version of Linux by 2020.

“We call this a de-Windowsifying movement,” Computer Science Professor Ni Guangnan of the Chinese Academy of Engineering told

The 75-year-old professor went on to discuss his plans to bring together China’s homegrown OS developers in an alliance to replace Windows within the next few years.

“Now is the most vulnerable time for Microsoft in China, and the best time for homegrown software companies to beat it,” Ni added.

So far the effort has the support of 15 OS developers. None of them can take on Windows by going at it alone, but China’s hope is that by pooling their talent and resources, they can rid the country’s reliance on Microsoft’s OS. It’s also worth noting that China recently banned the use of Windows 8 on all government PCs due to spying concerns.

“At the end of the day, I expect the 15 operating systems to merge into one or two operating systems, while the rest of the developers can shift into providing other relevant services,” Ni said.

Lenovo LogoThe deal has gone through

Back in January, it was announced that Google would be selling its Motorola division to Lenovo pending approval from authorities. Google, which had acquired the mobile company for $12.5 billion in 2012, was looking to sell it and now that all parties involved have signed off on the deal, Lenovo has acquired Motorola for $2.91 billion.

Of the $2.91 billion, $660 million will be in cash while 519,107,215 of newly issued, ordinary shares of Lenovo stock (valued at $750 million) was transferred to Google at the close of the transaction. As for the remaining $1.5 billion, that will be paid to Google in the form of a three-year promissory note. However, a separate cash compensation of $228 million will also be paid to Google to cover the cash and working capital held by Motorola at the time when the deal closed.

According to the deal, however, Google will maintain ownership for most of Motorola’s patent portfolio though Motorola will be given a license to the patents and other IPs in it. However, Motorola will retain 2,000 patent assets in addition to a number of patent cross-license agreements and the Motorola brand.

With Motorola under its umbrella, Lenovo has high expectations according to Lenovo executive vice president Liu Jun who said, “With the complementary strengths of our two companies, we expect to sell more than 100 million mobile devices this year – including smartphones and tablets – by leveraging the Lenovo brand’s leading market position in China, our shared momentum in emerging markets, and Motorola’s strong foothold in mature markets like the U.S.”

The acquisition of Motorola makes Lenovo the third largest maker of smartphones, which will now has access to the Moto X, Moto G, and Droid series of smartphones.

MSI GT80 TitanFinally, a gaming laptop with a mechanical plank!

Call us keyboard snobs if you will, but once you’ve experienced the pleasure of typing on a mechanical keyboard, it’s difficult to go back to those squishy membrane planks. Peripheral makers have stepped up to the plate with plenty of mechanical models in the past few years, though MSI gets a virtual high-five for being the first to plop a mechanical keyboard on a gaming laptop.

MSI’s GT80 Titan uses Cherry MX Brown key switches, which are known for being light, tactile, and non-clicky. It’s a popular switch among gamers because of their tactile response while remaining relatively quiet compared to Cherry MX Blue switches, which are loud by comparison.

Little else is known about the 18.4-inch GT80 Titan, at least on an official basis. Rumor has it the GT80 Titan may wield a GTX 980 SLI configuration and up to 32GB of RAM. Given the laptop’s size, we’re betting on this being a full-blown desktop replacement.

No word yet on price or availability, only that it’s “coming soon,” according to the GT80 Titan’s teaser page.
