Pandarinathan, how can you show a successful installation unless you 
are permitted to make one?  Your argument will put us in proverbial 
egg and hen situation.

Reg. statements about govt servants, I do agree with Sri Pandarinathan 
to some extent.  But, it appears that in the case pointed out by Sri 
Raju, the govt. is standing in way of adopting free-s/w.  Here, the 
problem is slightly different.

Will somebody please send me a copy of the Secy's order?
