Not only is it an interesting idea, it's not new. The story was posted to slashdot and readers offered websites that solicit ideas from anybody. ShouldExist doesn't seem to have a lot. Why Not? has much more, but I could only see the list by way of Google's cache (if that link doesn't work search google for "whynot" and then click on the "Cached" link on the first result).

- It's a public radio station (i.e. no commercials).
- It plays adult album alternative music.
- It has an mp3 stream, so that I can use xmms (or winamp) rather than RealPlayer or Windows Media Player (which is difficult under linux).
- I can get the news I was missing from Southeastern Louisiana.

(I've learned that the above link will create a lot of popups if you're using the world's most popular browser. Fight the power, install and use a browser which can block popups such as Mozilla Firebird (win, linux, mac), MyIE2 (win), Opera (win, linux, mac), konqueror (linux). Mac users can also use the standard Safari browser. Even the new google toolbar can help you block popups.)

All I can say to people in the process of moving from Windows to Linux and struggling to change their near-instinctive finger motion patterns is, "At least you're going from Windows to Linux, not the other way around."
And from a link on that site, Windows vs. Linux on the Server and the Desktop. It's not your standard comparison.
