A great list, thanks for the info! There is some newbie stuff and and some more inticate stuff for ourselves!
This is the best juice for anyone wanting to convert, Teach them on applications that are cross-platform or platform independent.
Things like Firefox, VLC and TCPMP are great starting points. Good on Apple for making safari available for Windows so people can get the "taste" even though it's not really "open source"
I really only use Windows for gaming now and am slowly attempting to make them all work in WINE..
