Yeah, fudamentalism sucks. I have to say, though I'm not sure how this will be received if a better system comes out with say better hardware support and community, then I would have no problem switching over. It's not about how I feel about linux and I do really love using it - but at the end of the day it's all about technical merit and I will go with the system that has the best combination of strngth, security, support, stability and of course where at all possible FOSS.
We can't have OS patriotism. I think it just promotes some kind of idea and not technical superiority, which is more important.

I have given anyone who listened to me information and distro discs.
I do not really want to 'convert' as such,more an attempt at showing people there are other choices out there,so they have a better,informed idea of what is available.

Sadly, I have not converted anyone to Linux yet but I have hooked several people onto Knoppix, does that count? Now I play the waiting game, once my friend gets an old Dell test box he has decided he wants to put Fedora on it so that's good.Registered Linux user #393103

I was showing my parents Knoppix when I first got into Linux recently. Dad was really keen to install it but I ended up deciding that it probably wouldn't be a good idea, considering they can barely use Windows But one day when I get time, I guess I could spend a few days getting everything set up and working (they have a lot of peripherals and whatnot) and make it all bomb-proof.
So I guess you could say I unconverted someone.
