And I've never seen it as the "elephant in the room." I don't like the
idea of catering specifically to Windows users who still want to use
Windows applications (indeed, it's not consistent with our Strategy
Document[0]). We're an open source project and we offer many open
source options for software between what's default and what's
available via the software center. If individuals wish to continue
using software designed for Windows I think that's really up to them.
