China to ban foreign software and hardware in state offices

Amidst an ongoing trade war with the US, the Chinese government has decided to remove all foreign technology from its state offices. This includes both hardware and software along with operating systems. The country plans to fulfill the ban in the next three years.

Does that include the tech they use in violation of international patent law? I'd assume not. Could they function on 100% China derived tech?

with that's going on, I'm surprised the US hasn't sent troops to Hong Kong. I feel like we're being led into something unnecessary with China.

The funny part about this is you would have thought that they were not already banned, which they were. This just reminds everybody that foreign stuff is banned. Which it has been for years.

Honestly I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner the PRC has their own operating system called Kylin (an Ubuntu based Linux distro developed by the National University of Defense Technology) and they certainly have the ability to manufacture hardware.

The problem is you don't know where parts are sourced from. You can assemble a co.luter in America, but who knows where the parts came from
