Kylin is full of giggles
Development of Kylin began in 2001, when the National University of Defense Technology was assigned the mission of developing an operating system under the 863 Program intended to make China independent of foreign technology.
That paragraph is about the FreeBSD version of Kylin. As we all know, FreeBSD was invented and developed in China. Totally not in the US and its imperialist lackeys. But, let's continue:
In April 2006, it was said that the Kylin operating system was largely based on FreeBSD 5.3. An anonymous Chinese student in Australia, who used the pseudonym "Dancefire", carried out a kernel similarity analysis and showed that the similarities between the two operating systems reached 99.45 percent.
That's what I call independence of foreign technology. Achievement unlocked.
The operating system of the Tianhe-1 supercomputer is 64-bit Kylin Linux, which is oriented to high-performance parallel computing optimization, and supports power management and high-performance virtual computing. The newer Tianhe-2 also uses Kylin Linux.
That's great. It looks like Kylin Linux is even more independent of foreign technology than Kylin FreeBSD ever was.
In 2013, Canonical reached an agreement with the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China to release an Ubuntu-based Linux OS with features targeted at the Chinese market.
And now, Canonical. The totally-not-foreign-technology-linux-distro-company.
Dear China: cut the bullshit. It takes a lot more than Xi Pooh's decrees, a five-year plan and some propaganda material to write an operating system from scratch.
