Well I am supposed to get an answer for "GOAL of LUG" in a different way. I
don't know about what adobe flex deals with. But what I believe is, we have
to find another solution for whatever the problem may be and Development
alone is what I believe. I believed ILUGC is to develop Linux environment.
If people uses proprietary, and If they are in LUG, they should try to
develop an alternative.

That is where I am bugging more. IS there no way to Design a BEST
Application in linux by any LUG ?

A learner can dual boot, then can covert into a developer(Where development
of what he found in proprietary good than GNU/Linux applications). That is
my view and Wherever I support, Development of Linux is also a key.

When I go to a school and speak about Mac, people never knows what LUG or
GLUG is trying to do. It must be a movement that reaches Every Indian. You
have to make people realize. I don't know about Mr.Siddarth's view as I was
not there and I don't want to comment him. and this is for the following
