HUAWEI’s blacklisting by the U.S. Department of Commerce has not only affected the mobile market – desktop operating system licenses have also been threatened. However, the Chinese tech giant has already found a way out of this situation by introducing a line of laptops based on “homework” – and this is not HarmonyOS.
On the Vmall trading platform, a line of vendor laptops running Deepin Linux appeared – Debian- based builds with a number of modifications, including the Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE) native desktop environment. Out of the box, it comes with a branded app store and a selection of useful software, including the Google Chrome browser, the WPS Office office suite, as well as Spotify and Steam clients. The operating system interface resembles macOS, and the list of 30 supported languages contains Russian.
Given that the client part of desktop applications is gradually moving to the Internet, users are becoming less dependent on the OS, and manufacturers have the opportunity to use alternative operating systems. This step also reduces the cost of laptops – for example, the models Matebook 13 and Matebook 14 on Deepin Linux will cost customers $ 42 cheaper than the Windows version.
It is noteworthy that earlier Microsoft criticized the US government for the sanctions policy against HUAWEI, which previously purchased from the corporation a license for Windows for its laptops.
