> Make OK the default, Change will bring up the current welcome screen.
> The user has then just to hit enter and GRASS is running. This would

> Location and mapset can be taken from GISRC, if that does not exist,
> create a new GISDBASE in the user's home, put the demolocation in it
> and use this (I think the wingrass installer is already doing that).

it make sense to me, I really like this idea. Martin
