Ubuntu Kylin is an official flavour of Ubuntu. It is a free PC operating system created for China and complies with the Chinese government procurement regulations. It includes all the features youe come to expect from Ubuntu, alongside essential Chinese software and apps. The interface has been designed specifically to put Chinese users first and with support for touch screens and HiDPI monitors, it runs beautifully on all kinds of hardware.
To create Ubuntu Kylin, Canonical partnered with China Software and Integrated Chip Promotions Centre (CSIP) and the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) to produce a fully localised and customised version of Ubuntu.
The team is working together with the open-source community to adapt the core features of Ubuntu to better suit Chinese users. Along with localised versions of the Ubuntu Software Centre, Ubuntu Kylin also features some of the most commonly used Chinese applications.
