+ - China's Government Unveils COS To Great Skepticism->

Submitted by redletterdave
redletterdave (2493036) writes "The government of China is not too fond of foreign mobile operating systems like iOS and Android, so the country cooked up its own homegrown solution: A Linux-based, open-source operating system called the COS, or China Operating System. But consumers have every right to be skeptical: China is using the recent NSA scandal in the U.S. to push its own product, but a government-approved mobile operating system, especially in China of all places, reeks of its own backdoor exploits for governmental spying."
