In the past (three) years when I've been organizing FlightGear's
LinuxTag booth, the visitors' crowd has been including the entire range
from the 'simple' gamer who's just having fun flying a 'hot' jet on
their Linux PeeCee up to the professional user who's been running
FlightGear hooked onto their in-house HLA framework as a visualization
tool to simulate airfield emergeny incidents.

I think, even though our 'regular' setup will still base on
FlightGear's own MultiPlayer protocol, for the latter flavour of
visitors it might be worth presenting "look, it runs HLA".

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
