i'm not so sure if it works that way in a country where one can buy a copy of windows or illustrator or ... for one dollar on the corner of a street; there are user groups in vietnam, china etc, but they don't have the membership fees that other lugs have; maybe tug and the eurolugs should send those local user groups a bunch of dvd's (for free) for their members and those interested. I can even imagine that we send left-overs since then one can rsync a local tree with a new one which is rather efficient.
