This news is about 2 weeks old but many of you might not know.  
UNIX has been chosen as the official "Open System" for China.  All govt
agencies, manufacturing plants, lab, offices, etc., etc., will be 
using UNIX!!!!!   A special version of UNIX will be developed
by the USL people to adopt to the China market.  7 millions
copies is expected to be sold by mid 1990s.  Great opportunities 
for all our UNIX experts.  

Wait till we get all these UNIX boxes everywhere in China and 
we will turn on the UUCP and USENET. ;) ;)  China, are you 
ready for alt.sex and soc.culture.china.democracy? ;) ;)

	I hope someone is making a chinese Linux version.
	Linux is FREE un*x and running on 386/486 based computers.
	More information in comp.os.linux or FTP tsx-11.mit.edu:/pub/linux.

	I think not ;-) nut Linux has uucp, so one does need to
	buy only 386 based computer to run it. And if you
	like to pay for it send checks to Linus Torvalds ;-)
