I understand your sarcasm and appreciate it, I know that dolder may
not be the best interface but that is just one idea. I must admit that
I found folder that Ubuntu had (not sure if it still has it because I
don't use it any more) with some OpenOffice calc and Writer example
files is great for demoing what can be done with FLOSS software and
all from a live CD.

So if you and others have other ideas jus keem them flowing...

ps. what do you think about other two points?
