They are doing a /lot/ of work on SuSE as far as I know. In tandem, they also
do a lot of work on Windows. They do a lot of everything, which I think is
fair enough. Even Apple opened a call center in India last week.
Look at the bright side, John. Development where cost is low appeals for a
larger market. Imagine a scenario where pirated Windows in China reaches its
end. As in the case of search engines (the "battele for China"), suddenly
you have a huge volume and market share, all attributed to a single country.
The global trends are reset accordingly.
