I believe that Darwin (or is that Thatcher) would have called it 'Survival of the Cheapest'...
Every single place will use talented, cheap Indian Brain Power, (or other third world country’s).

India and other third world countries have more than it takes to sustain in the IT field. its not that i am considering all you guys from US, GB and whatever as total nuts. but you shouldnt take away credit away from the indian programmers. Any company will find it a good move to shift their labs to india or other asian countries.
count on the ratio of indians to other country ppl in the development of softwares like the Windows OS, Websphere etc...
no hard feelings pal. Have a nice time

It remains the fact that the indian software house in my experience does not work on requirements / system design / standards / etc etc.
Or perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the cost of hiring and accommodating me in the UK exceeds the cost of hiring three senior programmers in india ?
