Sure, Hurd or BSD could overtake Linux. But it hasn't happened
today. Linux is the most supported, easiest to install OS and
the one everyone is going with.

If such a thing were to happen, I don't see a reason why
Linux India couldn't transform itself into <your os here> India.
In fact, a lot of "UNIX users groups" across the world transformed
themselves into LUGs, when they found out that the majority of the
users had switched to Linux.

The reason why we're here today discussing this is purely
for administrative purposes - so that we have a legal identity.

I also hope that this will lead to lesser politicking, because
we'll have a formal, well balanced decision making process.
People can't complain that certain vested interest is hijacking
the organization for their own purposes.
