This news about Armenia and Microsoft is very logical to me. Armenia is fast becoming a leading outsourcing destination for IT sector. The workforce there is highly educated, at least bilingual and inexpensive. No wonder Alcatel, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett Packard and others are already operating in Armenia.
