I agree. We want people to use Linux/*BSD etc and do it well; if necessary
and conveneient for <them> let them totally switch too.
Individually I would like to follow more of GNU ways but in a group,
plurality and non-judgemental advice is better even for 'converting' people.
And I have kept quiet on Prabhu's request, as I dont want to make it a
farewell (as he himself has remarked elsewhere). It is important that some
one else gets more actively into co-ordinating etc., and all the people
<old-guard?> will of course be around.

No. I thought we had decided long ago that ILUGC is far more
appropriate for our group than IGLUGC. If we call it IGLUGC it would
be sacrilege to speak/write about anything non-GNU on the list or
Stop the use/display of non-free software in the GNU sense of things
might mean no talk of anything under anything apart from the (L)GPL
license? If that is the case it is unacceptable.
Is it wrong to tell people how to use/install cygwin?
I see no point in changing the name.
