Those whom I know have seen Linux will no longer be the victims of hearsay
(i.e.  FUD).  They  will either move to Linux immediately, make  a  staged
migration  (e.g.  via dual-boot), or procrastinate a migration which  they
are  willing to make. At worst of circumstances, people will say that they
will  wait until Linux matures slightly further, e.g. "I need Photoshop on
Linux"  or  "my favourite game still doesn't run in Wine". They  at  least
know  what  GNU/Linux is capable of and will move without  hesitation/need
for prodding thereafter.

Best wishes,
