Hi Chris. Yes I have. It's a good site and very friendly but a lot of 
people don't respond well to text.

I give you the example of Global Warming. No matter how many peer 
reviewed articles or vocal scientists, it took a documentary 
(Inconvenient Truth) to spark the imagination of the (lazy/busy) public.

I would love to see/create a decent short documentary on the pros/cons 
of Linux Vista.

Only yesterday I saved a business ~$2500 on proprietary software. We 
know we have a strong case...
