Three North Asian countries (China, Japan and South Korea) are closer to signing a deal to codevelop an open-source operating system to replace Microsoft Windows, according to a Japanese news report.
The move to jointly develop a server operating system that’s based on Linux began in March with a meeting in Thailand of more than 100 software engineers from the three countries.
The group included representatives from universities and from regional companies like Sharp and Toshiba.
Where is India when such meetings happen? After all, we are perhaps best positioned to supply the programming talent to do it.
