Programmers make Gujarati Operating System a reality

,----[ Quote ]
| A quiet revolution in the confines of a computerâs Disk 
| Operating System (DOS) is causing a stir among the 
| software enthusiasts across Gujarat. Linux and other 
| parallel open source programmers from the state have 
| finally made the dream of an Operating System (OS) in 
| Gujarati a reality.

Open source software can save India $2 bn

,----[ Quote ]
| As Indian consumers and enterprises evaluate the option of
| upgrading to Microsoftâs much-touted operating system (OS)
| Windows 7, to be officially launched on October 22, the free
| and open source software (FOSS) community has fired yet
| another salvo at proprietary software.
| In the year 2010, if FOSS is adopted at 50 per cent levels
| across the economy, India can save around $2 billion (around
| Rs 9,800 crore), suggests a study conducted by the Indian
| Institute of Management-Bangalore. Even a very conservative
| estimate, notes the study, pegs the cost savings for use of
| FOSS on servers as an operating system or as an application
| at Rs 138 crore in 2010.


Could India Save Billions With FOSS? Whose Numbers Are Accurate?

,----[ Quote ]
| I suspect that such truly independent numbers would show
| that there are truths to weigh behind both Red Hat's and
| Microsoft's positions. Support and training are cost centers
| in big software deployments, but companies like Red Hat
| specialize in minimizing the costs for them. As is always
| true with statistics, it can get very hard to discern
| whether the ones we see are lies, damned lies, or truths.
