I have a concern about the term "Open Systems".  It has a late 80s,
early 90s smell about it.  I think that we should remove that term,
but it's not clear what to replace it with.  The best I have come up
with so far has been "AUUG: Australian UNIX and related systems User
Group".  Comments?  Improvements?
