Most of the programs that store data with the executables are the type with a 
single database and are usually either very old, or are some type of 
custom "vertical" business app.  The latter not being the kind of stuff that 
NTR customers are likely to have.  Games with saved settings and scores are 
another problem, but losing your high scores is not like losing your Quicken 
or TurboTax data.

While I agree that it should be the owner's responsibility, detailed 
instructions are in order and appropriate.  I mentioned a multi-platform wink 
animation that runs under both the windows and ubuntu partition.  Supplement 
it with a brochure with screen shots that the customer gets at time of 
purchase and can get another copy from NTR if they lose the original.
