Recently Mr Eric Raymond was in the news for having posted his experience about configuring and using CUPS. Generalising from it, Mr Raymond felt that Linux utilities and programs had some way to go in understanding the user interface. In that thread, some persons felt that Mr. Raymond had the 'street credentials" to tell it like it is on their behalf.

Given this position, it would be interesting to know what Mr. Raymond speaks about at your lugmeet.

Please keep us posted.
