Author: JT Smith

The Register: "Research outfit Gartner has noted an ominous development for Microsoft and other
non-indigenous firms operating in China. On 28th December 2001 the Beijing
municipal government awarded contracts to six local software vendors, and rejected
the seventh bidder - Microsoft. The contract covers office automation, antivirus and
operating software, one of the winners being Linux OS vendor Red Flag."
