Well, then you tell the user there's no need to install X Windows app, much less buy it in the first place for that matter, since an equivalent OSS app is available *totally free of charge*. I doubt they'll be too upset by that news. (Unless of course they already bought the app, but hey, you've got to get off the treadmill sometime, hard as it might be).

Of course, this might not be able to apply to parents of children who really want *that Windows game that everyone has* (unless you can maybe get it working under Cedega or something) but for the rest of the population, it should be just fine.
