How you can help Windows users quit

,----[ Quote ]
| What’s wrong with using Windows? As with other addictions, informed 
| recreational use has few drawbacks, but continual dependence on particular 
| software is a different matter. If you simply can’t boot a computer without 
| using Windows or can’t get anything meaningful done without it, then you’re 
| an addict who needs to be weaned off this habit.    
| 
| Most addicts will tell you that kicking a habit needs to be done in stages 
| and that the support of friends and relatives is vital. This feature will 
| look at a step-by-step process for giving up Windows and moving to an 
| alternative that doesn’t involve being locked into using one vendor.

Advocacy 101: Don't Preach, Ask Questions

| He claims that many FOSS advocates have been going about trying to "sell" 
| GNU/Linux to the rest of the world, when they should be simply pointing out 
| the obvious. He starts off with the notion that most non-techies actually 
| don't even have a frame of reference to grasp the idea of freedoms 0-3. The 
| truth is, they wouldn't understand freedoms 1-4; freedoms 0-3 would boggle 
| their minds.
