Linux "Versora's Progression Desktop migration tool gets better with every release. Now on version 2.0, the developers have expanded the capabilities of the software and qualified it with many more operating systems. It's never been easier to transfer your settings from Windows to GNU/Linux."

I think that this is the sort of technology that should be bought by someone like novell, redhat or linspire and used as a selling point. The ones who lose out just have to develop their own. Failing that, this is *exactly* the sort of thing distro makers should be working together to create! They all claim their competitor is Windows, not each other.

People able to download and install linux are unlikely to need this enough to pay for it, and I think those who'd pay for a distro will not want to fork out an additional $30 just to migrate their settings. Evidence for this can be found in the fact that individual programs like browsers and email programs tend to have import and export settings built into their product. I think operating systems should do too.
