The matter is.

That Chinese use cracked Windows, so their IE6 won't automatically update into IE7.
So idn.com can't be accessed by them.
So idn.com will not be used by Chinese for a long time.

When Chinese internet users discover "native language" domains I am sure they will find a way to access them

Re: The matter is.

How long did it take for most Chinese to go from IE5 to IE6?

Re: The matter is.

Vista has already been cracked.


I have no worries about upgrades, it will happen on its own.

Yes, but Vista requires 1G memory. most of Chinese don't fit it.

Re: The matter is.

That's exactly what I said about Windows XP when it came out.


Two years later, everyone and their mother were using XP. I figure the same will happen with Vista .

Re: The matter is.

Vista is good for the economy. Encourages people to buy new computers.

Re: The matter is.

The idea that the Chinese all run old machines that cannot handle Vista is a myth.

The problem with legacy machines that are not equipped to handle Vista and whose owners cannot afford to upgrade is much more likely to be an American problem.

Give and take 5-6 years, most would have upgraded.

You know what? I was still using Win2000 last year! I finally decided to upgrade when i couldn't install MSN messenger live. :p

This statement is pathetic. The fact of matter is that Chinese computers are far more better and much cheaper than these in outside of China.

Go have a look in China.

I am surprised at this response. Most Chinese are not fluent in English, why would they not have an interest in having website names they can read and understand.

And would businesses rather have Chinese website names people can "remember"?

Apart from a slight grammatical error, I cannot fault that statement.

The common misconception is that that China is receiving what computing equipment it has from Oxfam or some other charity.

The fact is that most machines purchased in the US will now come from China. The US may have more computers and more internet connections, than China but the truth is that because of the almost exponential expansion of the Markets in China and now India, the US is actually pretty small beer.

If the US doesn't get its act together, Silicon Valley will be most famous for Tumbleweed!

I thikn he is referring to pinyin, romanized chinese. The education in china teaches abc from kindergarden so that kids can be taught chinese characters using pinyin. 'Gongsi' which all of you are so familiar with now is pinyin. The chinese also use pinyin to input chinese characters on the PC.

Re: The matter is.

As a matter of fact, pinyin can be very confusing. I got a top score in school for pinyin subject, but I seldomly used it in my real life. The majority of Chinese people are not comfortable with pinyin. Often the same pinyin stands for multiple characters/words. For example, gongsi is 公私 and 公司 etc, which have totally different meanings. The drawback is obvious in using pinyin to search internet: hard to get targeted results.

Typing the Chinese character is a different story. One doesn't need to remember the pinyin in whole in order to type characters. For examples, 公司 you only need to type "gs", 中国 you only need to type "zhg" (instead of zhongguo) etc.

Re: The matter is.

Let's take a poll. Which do you guys is more valuable. Having 99% market share of a browser or selling legitimate copies of an operating system?

The conclusion you draw is your own.

7% IE7 browser share in China is a good start.
That probably translates into 6 million users.
