China has banned the use of Microsoft's latest operating system on government computers.

Beijing issued the restriction as part of a decree about the use of energy-saving products.

But official news agency Xinhua said security concerns related to foreign operating systems had led to the move.

Microsoft said it was surprised, but insisted it would continue to provide older versions of its software to the Chinese authorities.China Bans Windows 8 On Government Computers [bbc.com]
