[kwlug-disc] why not pick a kwlug project for the web site?

  here's one that i think would have some value -- recommended open
source alternatives to standard MS apps.  i've seen a number of those
lists over the years, and most of them suffer from a couple major

  * out-of-date

  * trying to list every possible alternative to a windows app, as
    opposed to just the one or two that are worth knowing

  a web page like that would be trivially easy to start -- for IE,
there's firefox.  for MS office, there's openoffice.  those are the
no-brainers.  but keep going.  i think a list like that that's kept
current would have *immense* value, and would quickly attract a
readership from all over.

  thoughts?  surely there's enough brainpower in the LUG for a project
like that.
