I bust a gut or two year on year supporting Linux - it occurs to me that
this is not a suitable question for ILUG.
The constitution makes it clear that ILUG is about Linux.
Article two of the constitution:
2. Aims and Objectives.
The aims and objectives of the society shall be as follows:
1. To increase and promote awareness of the Linux operating
system within both the home and corporate sectors of the
Irish Computing industry.
2. To provide a forum to discuss and gain experience of the
Linux operating system.
3. To help educate people in the usage of Linux and related
4. To promote Irish contributions to the kernel source code
That product is not in the Linux arena.
We can see from article two of the constitution it is not relevant.
So I suggest the following, boot a Linux install disk remove that
software that you fell foul of and install something you can ask about
here or else join the community of closed source people where you may be
told to (A) train (B) get a consultant (C) never ever trust the
information you get on a Linux mailing list because it may have
something to do with browser wars :))))))))).
Just as an aside there is a channel on freenode to support closed systems.
I strongly suggest that if you don't understand why you should not use
unfree software then please look at these a three part movie series of
Richard Stallman http://ftp.fukt.bth.se/pub/movies/stallman/, yes there
is some irony in my typing as I point to this. However there are those
who will over time continue to ask the wrong questions, so if anyone is
in favour of an amendment to the constitution let them say so and we can
all go off and join the ifso/fsf or some such ohh hang on we all have an
interest in Linux - or maybe you are members already just testing our
www.google.ie had the answer, it usually does, maybe we should offer
training courses on how to use it better, we could then patent online
course delivery using a medium sized computing device where small is
atomic and large is all existing computing resources in the universe for
the next billion^billion years.
