Submission + - Adobe releases AIR on Linux Beta (

abaweja writes: "Adobe has released beta version of AIR on Linux . This version brings AIR on Linux almost on par with that on Windows/Mac. Any AIR application that works on Windows/Mac AIR release version 1.1 should work on Linux too, except if it uses DRM features. This launch should bring Linux users closer to RIA."

Contrary to your belief, a Masters in Engineering in India, from India, even from IIT is considered a disqualification instead of qualification. Generally (not always) those who couldn't find job after Bachelors or didn't complete bachelors from say top 20 institutes go for a Masters.
In the Internet age once you've been initiated through a bachelors degree, you can easily learn advance topics on job as and when required.
