Tongxin Software announced a new plan for the deepin community to build a China-led desktop system root community

According to the release of Tongxin Software, at the deepin online press conference of the system root community, Tongxin Software announced that it will build a desktop operation based in China and face the world based on the deepin community. System root community, build the root system of China's desktop operating system.

Concerns about the security risks of the open-source operating system supply chain are the core pain points of the current industry. Compared with the Debian community with no national community and no commercial company control, Ubuntu and its derivative distributions and communities are faced with being "stuck in the neck" at any time. And the threat of "cutting supply", its system security cannot be guaranteed at critical moments, which is directly related to the sustainable development of the industry and the country's information security issues.

As the soul of the information industry, the operating system needs to be in its own hands, both from the perspective of information security and from the perspective of industrial development rights. Although the open-source operating system has solved the problem of operating system development in our country to a certain extent, it does not mean that open source is borderless and absolutely safe.

This Ubuntu service suspension event once again proves that China's operating system cannot rely on distributions controlled by commercial manufacturers such as Ubuntu, but should start with the Linux kernel, other open-source projects, and self-developed projects components, and build a new operating system for desktop application scenarios. Architecture and the open-source community.

Since 2015, deepin has abandoned Ubuntu-based upstream, and chose Ubuntu's non-commercial upstream community, Debian, as the basis for research and development, and has made precautionary considerations and preparations in advance.

There are more than 1.5 billion desktop operating system users in the world. The annual shipment of desktop computers is 300 million. The number of desktop operating system users in China exceeds 400 million, and the annual desktop computer shipment is 50 million. Affected by the epidemic, the proportion of remote work has increased. The number of desktop operating system users has also surged in the past two years. Moreover, in the fields of the corporate office, professional design, technology development, etc., the status of the desktop operating system is still irreplaceable.

In 2021, China's Linux desktop operating system shipments will exceed 5% for the first time. It is estimated that by 2025, China's Linux operating system shipments will exceed 20%, and the overall Chinese market share will exceed 10%. China will also become the largest Linux desktop. The market has the foundation for developing an independent ecosystem and the ability to lead the development of the Linux desktop system.

In addition, in terms of technical capability and scale, the scale of R&D personnel of China's major Linux operating system companies has surpassed that of Ubuntu and SUSE, ranking among the top three in the world.

After 15 years of deepin community, the deepin operating system has been continuously updated more than 200 times; more than 80 million downloads worldwide, and more than 3 million overseas users; more than 1,000 contributions have been submitted to 307 international open-source projects, supporting 33 languages ​​around the world; in 35 countries around the world There are more than 100 mirror sites, with multi-national user communities such as Spain, Czech Republic, France, Brazil, etc., and multiple distributions such as UbuntuDDE and Manjaro deepin are derived based on deepin.

In 2022, the new strategic plan of the Deepin community will separate from the Debian community, develop a new version of deepin 23, and build the Chinese desktop operating system root community with the concept of "product innovation, technology openness, process transparency, and partner co-creation", and strive to lead the way. Global Linux desktop operating system development.

At present, the organizational structure of Deepin Community consists of two parts: the management team and the interest group. The management team consists of community administrators, community assistants, technical committees, and operation committees. The group is divided into fixed interest groups and temporary interest groups, which will unite more partners to carry out various technical research and expand the incubation capacity of open source projects.

At the same time, Deepin Community will further develop overseas branch communities. On the basis of the original 3 overseas communities, a Canadian community will be added, and the Turkish, French and Italian communities will be restarted to further enhance their global influence.

In the future, in terms of investment and training of open-source talents, Deepin Community will cooperate with 20+ key universities to cultivate open-source talents, and invest in 500+ R&D personnel to consolidate community infrastructure.

In terms of product co-creation, code submission and management are carried out through community partners, and community forces are brought together into the code platform, architecture platform, and integration platform to jointly create a root co-creation version, and jointly build, co-create and share open-source achievements.

In terms of follow-up product planning, the deepin V23 version has a non-dependent package format, a modern graphics development library, supports the next-generation graphics display protocol, supports atomic updates, and forms a new version that spans upstream and cross-end collaboration.
