Hey guys,

This idea might be very left field, but how many business guys do we know
who might still be using Windows XP after the support ended?

I don't know how we could get the DVD's into their hands, but it might be
good for them if they could see if their business could easily work with
Ubuntu in the future (with an emphasis on security).

What do we think?
