That's a really good thought. If there are enough WWITPRO programmers 
that attend, and if part of their resistance to Linux is not being 
comfortable with how to get into development, quickly, they might 
welcome this.

Richard - how was your OpenWRT received? Did you get the same / 
different feeling from it than from, say, kwlug?

(Khalid?, others?) - at the web based groups, has there been much 
interest from Windows people in getting on to Apache and development 
tools, php, mysql, whatever that 'group of things' are (-:

i.e. Like firefox, there are a number of multi-platform tools out 
there, and many more with but a bit of work, if they knew they were 
there. e.g. php, mySql, Apache, tcl, pearl, ...

Is there any sense that (currently) Windows based people are just 
looking for a little migration path help?
