China is working fast on developing a Chinese branded operating system for both desk tops and smart phones, according to Xinhua News Agency.
The new system could be up and running by October and the move is being seen by many as an attempt to lessen dependence on US operating systems such as Apple and Microsoft.
Ni Guangnan, who is heading development, expressed hopes that the domestically developed OS will able to replace current desktop systems within two years.
Technology companies have come into the cross fire amidst cooling relations between the US and China. Last month, Qualcomm and Microsoft became the focus of antitrust investigations and are facing fines that could reach into the billions.
