    Talking about the main strategy to target the open source market in India, he said Infosys doesn't really go and sell Open Source. "We are there as the customer demand is there."

And so I replaced the RAM, installed Linux Lite, and after a short period, I was back to living a Linux laptop lifestyle while waiting for my charger. Read more
