How to convert non-techies to Linux.
,----[ Quote ]
| Eyecandy is also very important. Most new and non technical users are not
| interested in code. What they see is the GUI. Make their distro look very
| cool and pretty and they will fall in love with it. You can get themes from
| Gnomelook.org. Lots of people like Apple computers because of aesthetics.
| This might seem superficial to you but we are talking about the non technical
| users switching over to Linux. Another great application is Compiz. If their
| computer is powerful enough you can give them excellent eyecandy with compiz.
| With themes and cool 3D effects you will be able to make their Linux desktop
| nicer than Windows or Mac OS. Show them a little razzle dazzle.
Advocating Linux in the Classroom
,----[ Quot ]
| Linux shirts, caps, etc. Just the presence of those items will make people
| more aware of its existence. And if you make a really awesome design, people
| will talk to you about it and ask what itâs all about. A conversation starter
| that could let someone know about Linux and maybe even get him/her interested
| to try it out.
Microsoft: Sorry, you can't use these vouchers to learn Linux
