I wanted to address that issue.  I wanted to make the point that Linux is
viable in a corporate environment, where the non-technical staff is
supported by the technical staff, just as they are today with Microsoft or
Apple products.  The conversation really seemed to be oriented toward
personal use, though, so I could only get in about half of the idea.  I
was a little disappointed by that.
