I like your idea.

Political parties success when they can get the support of the mainstream 
society. How can we make the average person understand and support FLOSS?

No, this is not a good idea. I wouldn't support an anti-M$ party, not because 
I love M$ (I don't), but because I would prefer pro-enduser policies instead 
of anti-anything rhetoric. A political party specifically being anti-M$ would 
draw too much attention by lawyers etc, so it wouldn't survive for too long.

Will the political party you suggest be international or focused only in a 
specific region/country?
