I have no idea if this is of any interest.

My name is Henrik Nilsen Omma, and I am one of the project leaders of a new 
Open Source Project called TheOpenCD.  Our aim is to create a simple to use CD 
distribution of Open Source software for Windows, and in that way spread the 
OSS message. I'm writing to various LUGs to announce the launch of our first 
edition, and hope that you might find it a useful tool in promoting Linux and 
OSS to a wider public.

The disc allows new users can try out Open Source software (OSS) in the  comfort
of their own, familiar operating system, rather than having to take  the drastic
step of reformatting their hard drive to install Linux or BSD. The  collection,
which includes OpenOffice.org, AbiWord and Beonex is primarily  intended for
non-technical computer users. However, we expect that the disc  will appeal
first to experienced OSS users, who will hopefully find it a  useful vehicle by
which to introduce OSS to their less computer-savvy friends.

We invite all OSS enthusiasts to download the ISO, burn CDs and distribute  them
widely to friends, local schools, universities, and companies.  We  further
encourage you all to stop by our to comment, discuss and contribute!


Best wishes,
