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.
