Very nice to see alternative systems getting more exposure. GNOME+Orca is actually a really nice system, I use it as my primary system though I keep a Mac around so I can keep tabs on how the Apple world is progressing. For those who are curious, I've been considering doing an audio demo of how the system works and showing some of the applications. There hasn't been a demo like that, that I'm aware of anyway, since the days of GNOME 2.0 back in 2003 or 2004 and it's probably time for a new one.
