Microsoft Office Reportedly being Banned in Central Offices
   2014-06-30 18:17:18    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Chu Yiming

Parts of the central government and its subordinated departments have been banned from using Microsoft Office, favoring the national software.

This action has been seen as a significant move in terms of ensuring information security, following the prohibition of installing the windows 8 system in May.

The purchasing center of central government agencies has released a notice, saying all computer-related products purchased by the government are not allowed to install Windows 8.

The government has not given any explanation about this particular act.

However, the implementation of this act has an obvious advantage over domestic software companies, such as Kingsoft and Chinese software.

This time, despite the apparent reason of adopting this follow-up policy, the finance ministry has denied the accuracy of such a report.
