Re: What was the Plan
Israeli - Yes. Super duper impressed with the core arch.
Indian? Nope. Ill be on the web somewhere but Intel did try and start an Indian silicon development centre quite a few years ago. A proper one bot just a pretend one to get government sales.
Staffed it with loads of Indians from the States. Big plans. Big ambitions.
(The following is hearsay from other employees and leaks)
After a year of so they went native (return to their naitve state??)
Fraud everywhere. People were charging everything against Intel - houses, cars, dumb nephews et etc.
Intel were royally ripped off, from the top to the bottom of the Indian site.
It was all shut down and everyone sacked. Big dark cloud.
