There are several editions of Windows 10 to choose from, but if you're a member of the Chinese government, Microsoft has a version tailored just for you. Dubbed Windows 10 Zhuangongban, or "Windows 10 Specially-provided Edition," the specialized version does not offer as many consumer-centric apps and services as you get on a regular version of Windows, but there are plenty of management and security controls, all in accordance with the wishes of the Chinese government.
Ralph Haupter, Microsoft China's CEO, said in an interview with Caixin that the specialized edition was created in collaboration with China's Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC).
There's no mention as to what's changed or how the version is different from a normal consumer-centric version of Windows 10, but TechInAsia notes that the specialized version will be able to run all Windows-compatible programs without any issues.
