That's a *really* good idea!

Like it or not, "Gee Whiz" flashy stuff looks cool and people go ooh-ah over
it. :-)
I wonder how easy/hard it would be to set up like a couple of show-piece games
running a loop/demo; Some generic desktops going through their paces; The Wow
Cube spinning and so on.
Perhaps even simple stuff like basic OOo tasks?

An excellent idea!
