The U.S. NOAA, National Weather Service is **considering** using GRASS
at least in part to meet GIS needs on its Linux (operational)
workstations to assist in producing both meteorological & hydrologic
forecasts. The motivation for this is due to the fact that ESRI does not
support Linux and significant GIS needs must be met on the Linux systems
without introducing a lot of windows machines within the heavily
firewalled protected network.
One significant issue is GRASS support for non-expert users.
