    Well. I may be an idiot but, if it's for real, it makes perfect sense to me.
    Seems the idea is to teach Windows users how to do things in Linux. How better to do it than to offer them an interactive tutorial that they can use under the OS they're currently using.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    yeah, but you should ALSO be able to use it under linux (i know there's wine, but how's a newbie supposed to do that lol) there's nothing wrong with windows compatibility

    Yeah...Exactly. Though, sometimes that might be the only way. I think that really the best way is to start migrating Windows users to firefox, thunderbird, openoffice (or abi-source), gaim, etc. Once they can use the apps everyday, they'll have no problems switching to Linux (switching...not installing).
