OpenSource Software (OSS) In Corporate India
Contributed by: Some Desi, at 3/01/2005 07:34:00 AM.

This article gives examples of some corporations in India which have gone the OSS/Linux way, or are starting out. And it seems that Linux has made these corporations to take a look at other OSS applications too. Slowly and steadily OSS seems to be heard even outside the academic circles and the mailing lists. Localisation still remains one of the main focus of many OSS projects in India, which is a huge task as India has 15 "official" languages, each with its own script. There are thousands of dialects more if they are to be considered too! But without localisation it is difficult to introduce computers (let alone OSS) to the majority of the Indian population, even if it is to be one computer per village! One of the other stumbling blocks seems to be unavailability of Linux professionals. May be it is because Microsoft donates money and its software to the schools at subsidized prices that not many students learn about Linux?

  • In a day, I use several different operating systems. At work, I use Windows 2000, Windows XP and Fedora Core 3 (FC3). At home, I generally use Mac OS X and sometimes Windows XP professional. Preferences wise I love Linux (any distro), Mac OS X, Win 2000, & Win XP. Generally, in Linux, I like SuSE, then FC3, then Red Hat 9.0, and as soon as get done with Ubuntu, I bet I will like it better than anything. Ubuntu seems to be a very good distro. Thats it! :o) Tell me about yourself!

  • I am a lesser mortal. I use Windows (98 at home and XP in office) and am happy when I am able to do a session without any help.
