I think I may elaborate a beat further, about this.
This my not have to be a single distro project.
I tried to target the community, hoping that at distro X, a tech guy could cooperate, at distro Y, a art worker, at forum Z, a skilled marketing person, at some other forum, a maintainer, and somewhere else a good persuader.
It is not supposed to be a all Linux thing about all distro things. Its a way to help people coming from windows, to adapt, by quickly reading and understanding an attractive, succinct and well written wiki, explaining our terminology (and a few other pertinent items), and only including details that are common to all distros, together with some comparing with Windows similar. The art workers, the persuaders and the marketers, would then polish it to make it also a good marketing tool, with the best possible professional looking.
At the end, it could be placed at any site, but maybe in agreement with the Free Software Foundation, and allowing any distro or other FLOSS site to link to it. by mean of a standard banner.
This is the reason why I titled at Distro X forum that it was to increase their user base, and did the same, at a few other forums.
By having "a sort of like the first port of call", as someone at Mandriva, so well, named it, even new comers talking between them about Linux, would understand each other better among them, because as all started with a common standard reading, it's like they would be talking about the same kind of familiar tasting oranges.
And by that reason, it could also make life easier at every distro support forums, by the time they would later get involved with the specifics of each of them.
Assuming the project would sometime happen to be concluded, and be successful, it could help any distro out there to get new users, and more easily support them.
