Re: [PLUG] Windows themes (ON-TOPIC, i promise)

Actually, what we should do is try to find a way to get a grant
so that we can build the system -- and be paid for it!

The system itself could be GPL, or whatever the best license would be.

The People make a wise investment.   A few lucky propeller heads get
a (hopefully) fun and exciting project. 

But then the IRS does not seem to be in the business of making the payment
of taxes easy or simple. 

I'd certainly be interested in building a facility to make paying taxes 
online easy
and low cost rather than padding the pockets of TurboTax.

Any publicly spirited entrepreneurs about the list?
