Expecting, that general audience will suddenly install namecoin dns server to resolve .bit domains, they don't care is proved wrong and naive. After thinking a while, I figured out, that there is only one way for alternative DNS to become massively adopted. It must be supported by most ISPs. Usually, as far as I know they use BIND for their DNS servers. Easiest way to make them resolve .bit domain is to make top linux distros BIND resolve it off-the-shelf, by default, with default settings. So the shortest path would be to convince those, who responsible for major disto contents to ship everything necessary by default. Does anyone have an idea, where to start?

The only way for namecoin to become default DNS is to make it available by default with linux distros, without any efforts. ISP's can make namecoin available to masses if it ever become available by default with linux distros, simply by not removing corresponding packages, when they set up their DNS servers. With further namecoin adoption it will eventually become recognized part of an internet and get into all major OSes default distros.
