I believe it was Narayana Murthy but I had to look up the name to get a face so that is not too reliable. What you say is more in line with what I expected, it may be that I turned a conversation into an area he didn't expect given we were a group that did not mention Linux or FOSS at all during the open questions and I only asked it from him during tea afterwards. He was actually talking about his personal involvement in the community (general not FOSS) and how much social responsibility Indian corporations and Indians in general have which I can say I did see and very much appreciate. He was actually talking about how he donated a certain amount to a transplant clinic to bring the costs down to the point that transplants were available to the poorer groups. His answer to my question was that he was aware of what I mentioned but that it did not make commercial sense at that point but that they would support it when it did. I am paraphrasing since it was about 2 weeks ago. If I came through too negative I am sorry I didn't mean to. What really suprised me was his look when I mentioned it more than anything and I may have read more than I should. Thanks for the background info.
