Monday, January 20, 2014 Concerns about secret US surveillance programs has fueled the development of another homegrown operating system in China. China Operating System (COS) is not only Linux based, but also claims to be a much more secure alternative to Microsoft and Google's offerings. The company behind this operating system, Shanghai Liantong Network Communications Technology, is looking to offer a more secure alternative to Microsoft's Windows Phone and Google's Android operating systems through COS.

COS reportedly features HTML5 support, can run over 100,000 apps and appears to feature similarities with the Android and Windows Phone user interfaces. Other details of COS are yet to be revealed. Further, Shanghai Liantong Network Communications Technology claims that the operating system has already risen to become a national security matter. Not only is COS looking to take on Windows Phone and Android on smartphones head on, but also intends to take on PCs, tablets, and TVs. However, there is still some time before the operating system is completed.

The Chinese company is still looking for hardware partners to use its mobile and desktop operating system. COS then needs to win the support of handset makers and mobile carriers in China in order to develop and establish a mobile ecosystem around the new operating system. The China Operating System (COS) is a strategic product for national security which has become more urgent in the wake of recent incidents such as the US intelligence scandal of Prism and Windows ending further support of its XP system.
