A plug for PySol.
My wife is totally non-techno. She doesn't "get" the notions of
windows, or minimize/maximize, or clicking on the icon down on the
toolbar. But she does get PySol. When I recently upgraded, I had to
reinstall Python2.2 in order to use the old PySol binaries (couldn't
get the build-from-source to work).
Linux and Python got a fan due to PySol. It should be considered a
cultural treasure, and if a bit of funding would help keep it rolling
into the future, that might be worthwhile.
