China accelerating Linux testing and research

The news yesterday that China's largest software testing organization
was joining the OSDL was at the same time a bit exciting and scary to
me as an American-based developer.

The government-funded Beijing Software Testing Center was founded in
2002 with a primary goal of accelerating the development of China's
software export industry.

What this means for Linux could be great -- I mean having the
government of the most populous nation on earth pouring resources into
the development of Linux is amazing. This should have a real impact of
Linux's development -- especially in the Chinese market and other
markets in Asia.
