    Default Windows 8 for China?

    WinUnleaked posts some screenshots of Windows 8 for China, which seems that there will be a special version of windows 8 for China. windows 8 for China mignt be designed to prevent future conterfeit copies. It can be installed only with Chinese ISO, with English ISO, you get a BSOD related to bad MUI.

    There are none pre-pinned applications in the taskbar and Media Center isn’t present. Here are some screenshots from WinUnleaked.

    That part of the world is where the most counterfeiting goes on. Especially China & Russia.

    The thing to do would be, instead of a black screen & obtaining important security updates only, simply force those copies into a continuous boot cycle. Only unplugging power/removing batteries would stop the reboot cycle.

    It seems like much of the spamming is also coming from there. It's too bad they can't do something about that as well.

    For a very brief time, a few years back, I had the Zone Alarm firewall.
    On day, I turned on the "Alert" function. I was getting as many as ten attacks per minute, and 99% were from China.
    One was from the University of Georgia. Go figure!

    So I guess, China wins as the biggest threat to our security.

    There seems to be just about as much from Russia and the Ukraine also.
