Be gets $25 million funding

Be has announced it has received $25 million from various sources including Intel. This and its recent design with Hitachi bode well for Be. Interestingly Be is pushing Windows compatibility in the guise of file system compatibility and shared keyboard shortcuts. Say GNOME and KDE become more theme-able: what would you think of the idea of providing multiple themes that train a Windows user starting from what (s)he knows and building up to using Linux more natively? Rather like children's books start with a few words on which they build.
