On the subject of Linux evangelism

,----[ Quote ]
| The moral to the story, summed up, is âmake sure it suits their 
| needsâ and âif youâre going to switch someone to Linux, go big or 
| go homeâ. Donât be a jerk about it, above all else. My Aunt Jean 
| was about as perfect a candidate for which one could hopeâ she 
| wasnât tied to any particular Windows applications, she was tired 
| of the Windows headaches (patching, spyware, re-patching, driver 
| struggles, more spyware, viruses, oh hey, did I mention patching?), 
| but not only that, she was tired of the whole Windows user 
| paradigm, and was welcoming a change to the user experience.
| It wasnât a tough sell, and face it, it should never be. If it is, 
| you arenât honestly thinking of what the user needsâ youâre just 
| thinking about being right. Yes, you ARE right, but thatâs 
| immaterial.
| Letâs not forget that the user â even the non-technical one â is 
| still what this is about.


Want to try Linux, but are afraid to?

| After playing around with the live CD for a while you will realise 
| that although there is a lot of programs packed into the CD, it is 
| not that useful for long term use. Changed settings are lost and 
| memory is limited. The next step is to install Linux to some free 
| space on your hard drive to enable you to have a proper test of 
| this exciting new operating system. 



Using free software improves relation between state and society says the President Of Brazil

,----[ Quote ]
| There is a new relationship developing between the state and its citizens. Free
| software is rejuvenating these social relations this century", said the president
| of Brazil, Luiz InÃcio Lula da Silva in his opening speech of the second edition of
| the International Free Software and Electronic Government (Consegi) in the capital,
| BrasÃlia on 26 August.
