Yes, I think we should work closely with LinNet, and try to make SEUl
into a good LinNet client.

Right.  For the latter group. all we'd need is a Postgres or MSql server
with a pretty X app to access it to schedule meetings.  If we had a VB
clone, this would be EXTREMELY easy.

Maybe I was confusing with that post.  I'm thinking that perhaps we
should mention in the Linux newsgroups that another project be started
for something like a VB/Delphi clone.  Yes, it would be big, but I
believe necessary.

I've heard of VBIX before but know basically nothing about it.  How much
does it cost?  Is it viable for writing free software?  What about
database connections?  If it's not too pricey, and suitable for free
software development, maybe I'll buy myself a copy and write a
"groupware" app or two in it.

Yes, it's not OUR job to do that as SEUL.  I'm just saying it needs to
be done!
