i agree.. it will be easier to extend to us college folk.. although atleast introduction
to school levels should be done.. itll help people in starting earlier and theyll atleast
be aware of the existence of Open source.. Most students here are not even aware of such
software until they actually enter college.. i am an example..With respect to wine ... You
cant really expect a sudden shift from an entire life of windows to Fedora
instantaneously..it can be highly frustatingj just setting up a fedora system with
everything functional.. Also being able to run games etc will be an incentive.. A lot of
people refrain from using Linux because they use software that "cannot" be run
on it.. Using wine will show them that we can run windows software and more than that...
They will start with it and with passing time find Linux open source software that is as
good if not better than what theyve been using all their lives...regards,

I dont really think that adding wine will be such a good idea, but
making a special spin like a perhaps a Developer spin is a good idea
but we will seriously have to see who we are targeting
School or College
coz there need will differ
I am more biased to college as teaching college folks is much easier
and more targeted.
(If we talk about contributors.) Also school students can and do
contribute, but executing this school idea(even for a few number of
students) will need much more resource and care.
