First time I have seen an Indian company whip up a fan frenzy across the world. That company is Notion Ink and the product, Adam slate.
The official blog and comments is here: http://notionink.wordpress.com/2010/08/12/inception/#comments
If these guys pull this off, I will be very proud of this kind of acheivement. One the one hand we have Apple fanboy frenzy, which is fuelled by a company worth hundreds of billions and on the other hand Notion Ink which is venture funded and started by 21 year old college grads. The old entreprenueral spirit aint dead yet... garage startups still live in the age of mega corporations.

I believe that about 1 in 100 persons are suitable for IT or software development. and about 1 in 10 for IT support and such tasks. If India has 120 cr population, about 1.2 cr are potentially suitable for software development. Out of those many dont want to do software jobs. So in effect a much lesser number. We will run out of good IT software workers very soon. The figure is a little better for IT ops support kind of tasks.
