6. I listed window and Linux (ubuntu, fedora, puppy Linux etc..) as part of my resume . so asked diff between windows and Linux?

Windows proprietary ware and it is Microsoft product.
Linux open source and then asked about various Linux ‘s and what all are they….. i suggested ubutnu being widely used among other flavors

about puppy linux , it is of minimal size and we can boot it up just in a pend drive. and all that sort.

just remember….. question based on your resume content only.

7. will you prefer higher studies?
Answer: I said no sir,

I want to get acquaint with industry needs and i don’t wish to do higher studies.
then, i happened to say that i choose to join only i.t/cse field to gain expertise so ….. waiting for acquiring industry skills.(so don’t be over smart…….because next question was……)

8. diff b/w cse and it?
Answer: I blamed myself for saying cse/it in earlier stmt…….so made my answer ……to some extent i said it is misconception that…… i.t and cse are different and in general i.t people are closely associated with the business needs and they ensure which tool will benefit them to better in the business and they illustrate how the tool can simplify their tasks. cse are the guys who are confined within the company and they ensure to get the tasks done assigned to them in particular .

and finally i.t and cse people both cannot be treated as different , they are one other the same.
(don’t expect this to be the correct answer……i made it a story there.)

9. he then asked ……about the tcs form in which area interest was stated as both, what it meant.
Answer: I said… infrastructure services and software technology area.

10 . finally he made a joke at the end,

he said photo hair style seems different from the original one.
