I like the FGISF/FGRASSF idea. Regarding LAS, I'm not so sure
we want to move away from LAS exactly. They had been talking
about releasing a free Linux version, just charging for the Windows
version. They strike me so far as having a very positive corporate
role to play. If they contribute ideas and/or code to a Linux effort
without charge, is there a difficulty? Also, their development of
a Windows version will help to maintain interest in GRASS in
general, which can only help the overall effort to keep GRASS alive.
