Hi all!

I studied at the department of geology at the university of Freiburg, Germany.
There since maybe 1999 +/- GRASS is taught once a year in courses as mandatory.

In my personal course I can confirm: The jump to Linux-Commandline is
hard for most people and defocuses a bit away from GIS. (Anyway it is
a good thing to learn!)

GRASS on Win is a good point, that helps. Eventhough my experience on
my WinXP-Laptop I need to use for work is not tremendous (without
Postgres i was not able to generate a location).

Recent German pages here:
Many other material there is way outdated, but shows some activities
in the past.

Good data-material also helps a lot, i.e. when you have local data and
current problem-examples.
