Albeit 99.99% of us are arm-chair generals of an army of arm-chair soilders & workers, with empty pocketed stake holders. Just time-pass in front of an idiot box called a Web browser..
Frustrated middle aged males with too much time on hands.
Haridasji, unfortunately poor arm chair soldiers, keyboard ninjas that we are, we cannot do anything more.
The questions come from our quest to more then what is known as open source info or about progress of the programs which are not shared in the open forums, till the programs reach a certain level of maturity.
The opinions and directives are basically just our jingo dreams of what we would like to see or happen.
The above comments/opinion/directive also stem from the bitter experience that we have all had, where we are forced to go for imported systems, even when Indian solutions gaining traction.
For the Astra I have a distinct feeling that we will have to pony up scant resources to purchase Derby-ER, even though Astra MK-II is in development and we can live with the Derby, Astra combo for few months or a couple of years.
We have all seen this game played many a times before. The only difference now is that, as our programs start to progress, we are offered more and more cutting edge stuff by the foreign vendors.
