I found a guy living in China, Josh Kiley, posting pictures from China:
I don’t read Chinese but the pictures seem consistent with reports of stores selling GNU/Linux in China. I don’t believe the stories that these machines are intended for illegal copies of XP. That may have been the case a few years ago but there’s a whole new generation of users getting PCs now that have never used XP and for whom smart phones and tablets are OK.
Good for Dell and ASUS. Don’t forget the rest of the world.
