Infosys and Wipro should search their souls and become a humble
company once again.
They should retrain into Linux and offer more integration
and developmental services to
RHAT, Ubuntu, Gentoo, ArchOS, etc and also take Linux software
to the far east like Korea, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan
and offer it to them to put on new embedded devices. Linux is selling 3
million+ devices per DAY. It is easy to push that up to some 8 to 10
million devices per DAY but only if there is software for the devices!!!
There are no Linux engineers left in India. I should know, I paid
for advertising to hire them but they tell me the ones that phoned
hadn't graduated, but were shipped out to Bangalore before they finished!t
For fsck sake! Talk about a vacuum!
The remaining majority are all lost in the past dreaming
of a second coming of windummy OSen. Its not gonna happen!
Meanwhile some 5 to 7 million embedded Linux devices wait for software
to be developed for them. Also all the big corporations needing
massive infrastructure and services projects don't have anywhere to turn to
for fully supported mainstream Linux supported by big development teams
like the ones Infosys and Wipro could offer.
