Reaching out to China and India is desirable. Populations there tend to have strong sense of national pride and would readily explore any means to make themselves independent of anything perceived to be foreign imports/help (read: Microsoft, United States).

Potential synergies between China's [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godson#Loongson_3 Loongson 3], a MIPS CPU that can emulate x86, and a MIPS port of ReactOS that can pass x86-compiled applications to the Loongson should also not be overlooked.

It's also worth noting that the Chinese can easily enforce the use of Linux without losing much of their computing productivity, since implementing a country-wide switch in a country like China isn't too complicated, and the fact that they have no real need to inter-operate with other countries at the OS/driver level.
