[Web Comm] Need a couple more profiles

Sorry for the top-post (and probably html) webmail sucks.
You meant "visibility", not "viability", right? ;)  I think that Frank's disambiguation rings true.
Another government user:
Nosaj (clever attempt at anonymity) - works for a municipal government, and is highly constrained by both staff time and budget.  Nosaj has looked at open source geospatial before, but was put off by the implementation effort and the amount of time it would take to figure out how the various pieces fit together, especially in his primarily-Microsoft environment.  At that time, proprietary software had a better c/b ratio because of the ease of implementation, consolidated documentation, and low ongoing maintenance effort.  
Has come back to see if OSGeo has anything that allows someone who is not an OSGeo guru to quickly install and forget.  Nosaj wants to be able to get on with providing high quality line-of-business solutions that are themselves easy to maintain.  He is interested, but doesn't have much time to look.  He wants big captions, a snazzy "show me" live demo, and a couple recommended stacks with quick Windows/IIS installations.

Thanks for the feedback. I got on a bit of a tear and wrote the previous
ones up, and then started evaluating the proposed website content
against the user needed.

I am starting to wonder if I should take this up with the viability
committee? Anyone care to clarify the focus difference between the two
