Abstract:

Why don’t people use Starlink software? Kevin A Pimbblet outlines the problem and some possible solutions.

I discuss the remit of Starlink’s software strategy groups and an item on the agenda of one group’s meeting on 26 January 2001: “Why don’t people use Starlink software?” The answer was thought to be primarily a sociological effect: most people supervising UK astronomy PhD students learnt their trade when Starlink had a less than perfect reputation. I report on recommendations made to counter this effect.
