Along similar lines, I have been toying with the idea of doing video tutorials 
similar to those found at 3dbuzz (http://www.3dbuzz.com/) for .NET/Mono/Linux 
and wondered if there would be any interest?  I have completed (first draft) 
one showing how to get Mono/Wine running Winforms on a fresh RedHat 9.0 
install.  It was made with an evaluation copy of Camtasia 
(http://www.techsmith.com/products/studio/default.asp) and VirtualPC 
(http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/virtualpc/).  It is 28M and I have it 
currently available on my slow connection (you have been warned) at 
http://csharp4u.com/mono/Mono_Redhat9_0.avi.bz2 .  Would clips like this 
enhance the accessability of Linux to the Newbie (not that I am that awesome 
myself)?  Would it be worth community time/bandwidth to persue similar clips 
for other topics?

>   We really need to get everything in the same place, so people who aren't
