thanks for that steven, you missed the point, its not dennis hood I am 
interested in educating, in this instance, but those people in ICT who 
havent a clue about open source, or at least the clue they do have is 
totally bloody misguided.  These are people who can and do advocate for 
ICT solutions within their employment sphere. Those employment spheres 
invariably today are dominated by proprietary software.  If we dont 
refute their misconceptions and educate them, it will take longer for 
FOSS to permeate into those areas that we would want them to be.

I happen to think that these persons are very important in that quest.
