Bug 1 isn't about converting *all* MS Windows users.  It is about reducing the 
MS Windows marketshare to an acceptable level.  In particular, making sure 
that Free Software is adequately represented in the market so that when I go 
to buy new gear I can actually find something acceptable in my local area.

Currently, if I want a new desktop with Free Software pre-installed, I must 
seek out the Internet.  (Or buy a recycled one from the local Free Geek; none 
of which meet my minimum specifications.)

I do believe a Free Software system should be as easy to use as MS Windows for 
"Joe Sixpack" and "Jane Boxwine".  This might already be the case; it is 
really hard for me to judge.  I've been programming since I was 5 and a fan of 
UNIX and UNIX-like systems since I first used one.
