I am coorganizing the CrossDesktop DevRoom for FOSDEM 2012. You
probably have already seen the announcement because I have spammed
every list moderately related to the topic :-)

Last year people were very interested in KDE on Windows and one of the
post-event conclusions was it would be nice to have CDs with KDE on
Windows to give to attendants (i. e. instead of downloading
everything, distribute it in a CD).

Crazy me, I was thinking maybe we could take advantage of the 45-day
grace period for activation Microsoft offers and maybe create a live
CD with KDE on Windows. If we could replace Aero with Plasma, so that
it looks like "KDE with a Windows kernel", even better.  I have not
really conducted much research into this (especially on the licensing
issues) but, what do you think?

Also, I have contacted Microsoft about them submitting a couple of
talk proposals for the CrossDesktop DevRoom. We'll see.
