Since Huawei was included on the blacklist of the United States, the future of its products has been questioned. The company however has not left intimidated and has even boasted more or less self-sufficient in terms of components hardwareBut the software, especially the mobile arena, is a different story. Huawei has been looking for alternative operating systems to put on their devices and they seem to have decided on Deepin Linux for some of its notebooks to be sold in China.
Unlike what happens in the mobile world, where there are many options to choose Huawei, actually there is only one way forward for the company in the PC world. If you are prohibited from using Windows, You will have to develop its own operating system, which would be a complete waste of resources, or use one of the hundreds of Linux distributions available.
Huawei seems to have chosen the latter alternative, at least for the moment, choosing Deepin Linux Linux as the particular flavor to put on a few select models of their laptops MateBook. Deepin is considered one of the most visually pleasing distributions.
For now, laptops flavored Linux seem to be limited to the Chinese market and select models as MateBook X Pro, MateBook 13 Y MateBook 14. If Huawei plans to make these more widely available variants will likely depend on the outcome of his battle with the government of the United States.
