    Windows 10 in China


    China is a global epicenter for innovation and as we shared back in March at the Windows Hardware Engineering Community summit in Shenzhen, China, we’re excited to be working with leading hardware and software companies in China to develop ground-breaking devices and consumer experiences for Windows 10.

    In China, hundreds of millions of PCs operate Windows today and we’re excited to see over 10 million devices already running Windows 10. Our focus has been on delivering a great upgrade experience for our customers and through partnerships with Tencent, a leading social networking and gaming service in the world; Qihoo 360, a leading internet security company in China; and Lenovo, one of the world’s leading PC manufacturers – we’re off to a great start in China. And, we’ve seen great feedback from our program with Xiaomi, one of the top smartphone distributors in the world, helping us test Windows 10 on mobile devices with a set of Xiaomi Mi 4 power users.

    Today, we’re excited to announce another partnership with a leader in China – Baidu. With over 600 million active users, Baidu is one of the most frequently used Internet gateways in China.

    Together, we will make it easy for Baidu customers to upgrade to Windows 10 and we will deliver a custom experience for customers in China, providing local browsing and search experiences. Baidu.com will become the default homepage and search for the Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10. Baidu’s new Windows 10 distribution channel, Baidu “Windows 10 Express” will make it easy for Chinese Internet users to download an official Windows 10 experience. Additionally, Baidu will deliver Universal Windows Applications for Search, Video, Cloud and Maps for Windows 10.

    We remain deeply committed to delivering Bing around the world and we’re also committed to offering locally relevant experiences – like Baidu in China – to provide great Windows 10 experiences.

    You can find more information about additional partnerships announced today here.

    Thanks,
    Yusuf

    Microsoft strikes deal with China's Baidu, gets a chance to upgrade more than half a billion PCs to Windows 10

    Microsoft yesterday said it had struck a deal with China's Baidu, best known to Westerners as the country's largest search provider, to push Windows 10 to China's massive consumer market.
    For its part, Baidu will use its own distribution channel, including an application labeled "Windows 10 Express," to offer consumers the official Windows 10 upgrade download. Also, Baidu has committed to crafting "universal" Windows apps -- those that run on all forms of Windows 10, albeit after some tweaking to finesse the differences between Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile -- for search, video, maps and online storage. Of the latter, Baidu offers 2TB of free cloud storage space, double what Microsoft gives its best customers, consumers who subscribe to Office 365.
    I never had any problem seeing Bing as the search engine here finding far less risk of malwares and adwares while still advising some type of web filtering process since bad sites can come up on any search engine at times. So it wasn't any surprise seeing Bing in Cortana being MS's own used there.

    The same would seem to apply for baidu as well simply being another search option on the web seen there. As for Edge that is still in need of a number of fixes even with the latest 10547 build I hear.

    Hi there

    what's up with all this anti China stuff -- OK it's not the USA or Holland - but on the whole the country works satisfactorily for most of its people - and the West seems to be quite greatful for relying on the Chinese economy there to get their own economies out of a massive hole. As far as Human rights are concerned -- what about "Rendition" and other practices I'm sure the US Federal govt would rather people don't know about.

    The Chinese are quite capable of bypassing blocks etc -- if you want to complain about ISP blocking just look at the UK which probably has the Courts blocking more sites (usually ineffectually BTW) than the rest of the planet combined.

    Cheers

    Today the President of China and President Obama are holding a joint press conference, then going partying. Microsoft will likely have representatives around too.

    The negotiations involved leading Chinese companies and government institutions. Microsoft will work on cloud solutions for Chinese businesses, prioritizing state-owned enterprise customers. The Microsoft/China partnership is aimed at users in specialized fields in government institutions and critical infrastructure state-owned enterprises. Replacing XP and W7 on the workers PCs was not the guiding force behind these negotiations, but it was something the Chinese knew that MS really wanted. It was a nice trump card to hold in these negotiations and we do not know just yet how it was played. Baidu wins whatever the OS happens to be, even if the OS is pirated. The road to W10 in Asia, South America, Russia and its current/previous satellites is strewn with banana peels, but it seems that MS believes they will not step on any of them.
