"... I don't want to switch to Windows 10."

@gregormi, Exactly! We must respond to this feeling and not ignore it. This is why we should prepare for this event which is going to happen in the upcoming years, and offer them a way to make a clean and easy transition - by training them. In that respect, the timeline for the BHAG is corresponding to this event.
People say that when Windows Vista or Windows 8 emerged, GNU/linux desktop wasn't ready for the masses.
Let us aim for something completely different: Help as many Windows 7 Power Users to switch to Plasma/linux.

I've added 'Windows 7 Power Users' as a target groups.
Why? Recently I've read a post titled "The Purpose of Linux: A Windows Power User’s Perspective" (https://raywoodcockslatest.wordpress.com/2016/06/21/windows-power-user-linux/), that raised some interesting points. Mainly - that Windows 7 Power Users look for an alternative - They don't want to switch to Windows 10 (though eventually their OS wouldn't be supported anymore), because it will limit them and make them simple users.
We should also target this market share as Plasma and KDE apps can suit them greatly (Simple by default, Powerful when needed)
Here is a short quote from the conclusion of the post:

The missing piece, in those mission statements and purposes, was an articulation of a realistic target market. This post has suggested that Windows power users comprise an appropriate and significant target market for Linux. For such users, the objective would not be to make child’s play of computing, much less to draw the masses away from Microsoft. It would be, rather, to create a computing environment in which basic commands and appealing graphics, along with clear hardware and software guidance, would enable an intelligent but busy knowledge worker to get things done with minimal disruption, learning helpful and manageable bits of Linux as needed along the way.

@neofytosk, These are good ideas to overcome these problems. Do you think we should now try and approach people that already upload videos/tutorials in order to see if they're interested in this project? Or should we wait for the final vote?

gregormi, Thanks for joining! You're experience as a teacher of GNU/linux would contribute a lot.
