China denies 'Asian standard' for Linux
China has never intended to develop an isolated Asian standard for Linux, which some Japanese industry executives fear, said a senior Chinese Government official last week.
"We have never promoted a so-called Asian standard in Linux development," Ding Wenwu, director of the Ministry of Information Industry (MII)'s electronics and information products management department, said last week.
The Chinese, Japanese and South Korean governments last September formed an strategic alliance to promote Linux development and applications in Asia.
