Microsoft Research sees “exciting” opportunities for

Indian government's unique identification project – in the areas of

1. User Interface: We know whom MS copies from...
2. Multi-Lingual Systems: Don't we know our language better? For a lot of time MS
didn't understand standards in this area, they made users download special fonts of
all things to see multilingual Web Pages.
3. Mobility: The came and they couldn't conquer.
4. Secure Database: Their OSs have 17 year old bugs, browsers have security holes... Did
they just say Secure Database management?
Guess, what MS wants to do is learn from our experience so that they can offer it to other
countries and nations.
