That rules out MSU right there.  Anybody have suggestions on finding an 
audience?  How about teaming up with someplace like Best Buy?  Show people 
how to stretch their computer dollar with free software, so instead of 
having to buy a smaller computer and drop a bundle on an office suite, 
they can buy a bigger computer, get an office suite, graphics tools and 
desktop publishing.  Again, without forcing them off of windows.

That also makes a good venue for things like showing off what can be done 
by the really adventureous via Linux.  Things like a Mythbox, or video 
editing with kdenlive.  I'm perfectly happy to show off kdenlive if we can 
get a machine in with the horsepower.
