[Discuss] Howto Challenge

Coming off the tail of the pretty hard core "Why Linux" debate, anyone
want to come up with a more constructive forum?

I suggest a howto challenge. We field a number of "how can I do xyz?" and
we construct a concise "howto" based on our platform of choice. This will
accomplish far more than a debate, this will produce actual sable
knowledge and take rhetorical arguments out of the equation. Then we all
score the submissions.

I propose we score them as:

(1) Ease of implementation.
(2) Cost of implementation.
(3) Stability/Performance.

Any takers?
