Open Source In India

Slashdot has a story about Open source in India. Like a lot of stuff in India it's overhyped and totally ridiculous. Consider




a) How many Open source projects have you see intitiated byIndians?


b) How many Open Source Contributers do you know from India?


Check out openbsd.org, and the geographical map they show of there devleopers, India does not figure.

c) How much contribution has been made by Indians to Open Source here.

GNU India


2003

Ramanraj K (Chennai) - Rs 1,026


2004

Deeproot Linux (Banglore) - Rs 15,000

Atul Metha (Delhi) - Rs 10,000

Vimal (Kochi) - Rs. 500


For those not from India you just need to divide it by 45 to convert it to US Dollars.
