    i have been hearing of this ever since i joined pdf... people seem to automatically react to my birth religion.

    but there is no achievement !!!

    and i am socialist... it is simply not within me to be proud of someone just because they are of the same nation as me... i will be proud of any human if they achieve.

    you did not quite answer my point.

    its just a spelling competition for school kids.. dont read too much into it.
    BTW too much focus on educational achievement(while being underachiever in other aspects) is typical for asians.. chinese and south koreans are crazier than us.

    And you still say that ecosystem is a buzzword?
    Right there you have an ecosystem that is encouraging strange sites. Its because people have worked with those ideas and have seen it produce results.

    Try doing the same abroad. You get what you pay. If you just pay 20k per month, don't expect a perfect engineer. I have found most engineers I hire to be decent. But I do pay well.

    Who will buy them? what was the market need? How will it sustain itself?
    Seems more like a vanity project than something that was actually needed.

    qnx is dying. They are themselves selling their linux services.
    These examples... will take time.

    I still stick with my idea. I don't disagree with your statement either.

    :-)

    I disagree.

    I disagree again.

    enjoy :tup:

    yes, south asians and south east asians are more followers than leaders in technologies.

    only russia ( eurasia ) is really a innovator in the asia region.

    Being south asian, they take anything wayy to seriously. They might create a fountain some mile high which other than throwing water into the air does nothing. But it will be a glorious achievement.
