Quick note. Why dont we Indianize this? "I want GNU" is a very
American pun. I doubt that most folks here would get it.
Unfortunately I cant think of anything else either.

Sure. If you share my tee-shirt I will call it "foobar", and if you
want to use my tee-shirt, I will say you are indulging in "foobar" because I
said so, and I'm allowed to say so, since its *my* tee-shirt. If you don't
like the concept of "foobar", don't use it. But I'm digressing. The point is
this: Ilugc (to me) is just an informal setting where random madrasi geeks
can get together and discuss *Computing* stuff -- We have discussed many
things, including the implementation of the linux kernel, and IPSEC in BSDs,
and about the networking code in Windows 2000. I want it to remain that way.
It does not mean I'm for proprietary software, and waiting/wanting to use

Okay, I just bought a knife yesterday. Am I allowed to go stabbing
everyone around me, since its *mine*? Besides, of what relevance is this to
Ilugc? What I'm saying is, if Ilugc wants to discuss the technology behind
knife-making, its perfect. I don't care if the knife was manufactured with
machines using proprietary software, or GPL'ed software.
The debate was on whether it was okay to discuss proprietary
software at Ilugc, and not quite on what is good for society. But then
again, I do not think its right for me to participate in this thread any
further simply because I'm not going to be at the LUG meets for the
foreseeable future, and if you would rather want to discuss GPL'ed
software, good luck to you, and go right ahead.
