I absolutely agree with "Grant".
OK, so those of you believe it is a good idea, you could help me perhaps...
download my DVD ISO (from my link),and give some feedback.
You can run it on virtual machine, which can be destroyed/reverted afterwards.

I believe, that this war - is one of eco-systems -- pushing Windows
users to use LibreOffice + FFox is good -- it gives businesses
incentives to write web-sites, that are FFox friendly and sent
documents that can be opened by Free Software.
My disc won't instantly convert 100% MS users into GNU/Linux gNewSense
users, but it will slowly destroy MS eco-system.
For example, if all my friends use Skype and use MPEG4 videos, I will
have trouble migrating to Free Software, even if I have zero
Windows-only killer-apps.
What holds me back ? Proprietary eco-systems !

But if they use IRC + WebM - then no problem - I can migrate.
This is a war of eco-systems, that we speak about.
So even if some users won't migrate to GNU/Linux right away due to
Windows-only killer-apps, it will let their friends migrate.
The real aim of TheOpenDVD, is to destroy the proprietary eco-systems
(Skype/IE/VMware/MS-Office/Adobe...), which will let some users (along
with friends) to migrate to entirely Free systems later.
