    Yup, everyone didn't care of someone race or religion. But some care if they're are Muslims. Sigh..

    Yes, if you read my post entirely you'll see I conclude that. But hey I went to deep in the (off)topic.

    I would like to point out I never said any thing about race , Religion or sex . I did however say foreigner . I was wrong and I am sorry for that . I do think that this guy will do a great job and will be an asset to AMD . He is more than qualified to take on the monumental task . Thing is AMD has to get the " Word out " about there products . It is not enough to just put a sticker on a lap top or desk top and say that is good enough . Intel has TV adds , We all see them in our homes and hear them on the radio . This is one thing AMD is lacking . I hope this new CEO will see this and do some thing about it .

    lol as soon as he was confirmed to be american, you gave him the "green light". I wonder what is it like to work in a company of this magnitude in a position like his, you'd get to see a lot of technology years before us, I guess. It's good to be him.

    Finally!! I am sure his technical interview process would have been much much easier than your final approval :laugh:

    Indians took your jobs long before you knew. Want an example... Here you go

    Reasons and some quotes from articles...
    "Schools ratchet up the standards, but most students graduate high school without even basic skills. Despite four decades of increases in education spending and the US spending more per capita on education than any of the 25 leading industrialized nations(!), the respected National Assessment of Educational Progress reports that fewer than 20 percent of 17-year-olds read at a “competent” level. In major cities, so-called "job illiteracy" is rampant. For example, in Los Angeles, 53 percent of adults are unable to read a bus schedule or complete a job application."

    "According to the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, the average number of children born to US women is 71% greater for high school dropouts than for college graduates. The average IQ of the dropouts is less than 96."

    " At most selective colleges, the racial difference is astonishing. For example, at the University of California Berkeley, the average SAT score for Asians and Whites is 1400, for Blacks just 1170. And you get 400 points just for signing your name! And not disclosed are the “special admits,” mostly Black, who are admitted with even poorer scores. Reverse discrimination, of course, results in less qualified people getting slots in our prestigious colleges, which are the launchpads to leadership and important positions in the professions."

    "Dr. Bernard Davis, when he was department chair at Harvard Medical School saw, first-hand, the reverse discrimination toward African-American students. So, he told his wife, “If I ever need surgery and I’m looking up at an African-American surgeon, wheel me out.” If there’s that much incompetence among African-American medical students at Harvard, imagine the situation at the vast majority of colleges, which do not get cream-of-the-crop students."

    "Corporations have long offshored manufacturing jobs. Now they’re doing it to white-collar jobs. And it’s understandable—getting a qualified Indian or Chinese person to do the work for 20 cents on the dollar—with less threat of the rampant illegitimate wrongful termination race- or gender-discrimination suits, is compelling."

    I am not criticizing anyone. I am just pointing out realities. I accept that India has problems so we go out and look for better opportunities elsewhere.

    some facts...

    as someone who known Rajan-here are some facts:

    1. he is 39 and bald
    2. he was born somewhere in Africa!
    3. he has few ties left in India - but he is of Indian Origin
    4. In response to Trickson's comment:

    "Millions upon millions of Americans can and are just as qualified as this man is.."

    do millions of Americans get straight A+'s from Cornell? can't by definition an A+ means you were at the top of your class.

    do millions of people get admission to an MIT engineering dept? can't by definition the average number of grads admitted to MIT's material science is less than 75 (at least when Rajan applied)

    do millions of people graduate from MIT with straight A's (5.0/5.0)?

    when you apply the filters that Rajan made it through..I think you are more like in the hundreds including international students..and then perhaps on the order of tens when you consider americans...

    IMO we need more Indians. I like to look at their woman. They got it in all the right parts.

    As for this new guy at AMD he will be sacrificed on the tree of woe soon enough.
