They are already using open source in their portal.. The company that
is handling their IT operation is Tetra (tetrain.com) which is doing
business on open source consulting.
Regarding their IT Vision, the following points are appreciated..
* 2 MBPS Internet connection at every village. (its possible,
considering the fact that EVDO provides up to 2.4 MBPS even in smaller
* To standardise open standard and open source.
* Promotion of IT in Indian Languages.. -- i think, if they implement
this, its a boost for more penetration of open source to our people, who
dont know english..
any way.. if other political parties also follow this, then the open
source concept will spread to people through election.. (people will
atleast want know what open source is)
