Microsoft already wrote one for China

While Apple has strongly resisted building a special ‘GovtOS’ to provide the U.S. government with access to iOS devices, it appears that Microsoft has no such qualms. TechInAsia reports that Microsoft has created a special version of Windows 10 for China, called Windows 10 Zhuangongban, which includes “more management and security controls.”

Although Microsoft hasn’t gotten any more specific than that, I’d agree with TNW that these controls are likely to have been introduced at the request of the Chinese government for domestic surveillance purposes.
