    Several, including some pc newbies. Who now use Linux as their prefered OS.
    And a lot of friends, some are now linux sysadmins

    It's a perfect way to test your linux install and config if you have a newbie around
    And if they like it, they are hooked

    Most of my Company i think instead of 99% window boxes we are probably looking more like 40% windows boxes and 60% linux unfortunally there is still software we are required to run that is only for Windows but where it can there is linux installed

    One of my friends were having hard times with the product activation on an XP on a old machine, at the same time it was slow so I made him install mandrake! It worked faster than XP, even with kde 3.2 so he was satisfyed

    I try not to "evangelize" or mention the word "evangelize" when talking about operating systems, because there's a negative connotation to some people when you make a religious reference about something that's in no way related.

    I love Linux, it works for me. I don't personally believe Linux works for everyone, nor do I think Linux should *try* to. Just as there are many different brands and models of automobiles to fit many different needs, there should be just as many operating systems to fit just as many different needs. Forcing everyone to use a Prius may make the environment smell better, but some people just NEED a large pickup or van or bus. But I digress.

    Microsoft is effectively pigeonholing 90% of the computer users out there into their model of car, and I don't think that's right. I don't however think it's right for Linux users to try and do the same thing with our OS. Encourage *choice* and *competition*, not swapping one yoke for another.

    Agreed! I haven't seen the bright blue of the bsod in Linux and am quite proud of that. Come to think of it...I don't see very many crashes.

    As for me, I have tried to convert 2 people and have failed at that. I have though, heightened interest in one guy who is going to try it this summer.
