So we have a .gov.in

If things went according to plan, http://india.gov.in would have been officially inaugurated about an hour and 20 mins ago in New Delhi. I don't really care about official inaugurations. What I do care about -- usable sites. As far as a normal user on the internet is concerned, the Indian Government Portal is kickass. I'm hugely impressed by the amount of information it has and well, how neat the site looks on Firefox. Kudos to the NIC for bringing out an excellent site.

With FOSS.in/2005 right around the corner and things starting to get into the final phase, what pleased me the most was this...
