Beijing, May 21 :
Microsoft may still sell Windows 8 in the country, but the Chinese government will no longer be a buyer, media reports said.
Concern over security led to the ban on Windows 8.
Microsoft recently ended support for Windows XP, which has about a 70 percent market-share in China.
This means that millions of computers are no longer getting security updates.
Apparently, the Chinese government does not want repeat of such a situation.
“The Chinese government obviously cannot ignore the risks of running OS without guaranteed technical support,” the report added.
