We talk with many people and attend many conference events, sometimes we wonder if we are really effecting anyone's computing experience. I received this email today that I asked permission to share.

I just wanted to thank you. I've been trying to get Linux working on one PC or another for almost a decade and am now happy to say that I'm running 8.04 flawlessly on 30GB of space via WUBI on my XP Dell!

If it weren't for needing a colour calibrated monitor and PhotoShop CS3 for work, (neither work with WINE yet) I'd blow the XP away completely!
