I agree very much with this! I believe that Linux is one better product -
but it doesn't "sell", yet.

Some Linux user-groups are starting to actively promote Linux, and I
think that's the way to go. So, instead of doing anything against MS
(which will always be wasted energy) - do something *for* Linux (or
whichever OS you find superior).
