by / November 24, 2004
Intel has released a Quick Start Kit for Linux in China and India, according to media reports today in the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and the UK's Inquirer . The kit will provide support for systems integrators offering PCs running the Linux operating system. According to an Intel source, there is growing demand by government and education customers in India and China for Linux systems.

To counter the Linux kit, Microsoft will sell an inexpensive version of Windows in Asia called the Windows XP Starter Edition.
