I agree. A nice summary of what *can* be done on Windows and Linux would
be very helpful.

I volunteer to set up such a web page. I invite everyone's input (I
looked through the items on Bugzilla, but most are too complex for this,
to my understanding) on several such small, self-contained projects.

Also, what do you think about a weekly mono newsletter? This can be used
to gain publicity and also to promote these micro-projects :-) I will be
able to do this as well.
