I just read a post, "Help Spread Linux... Don't Preach It!" about Linux advocacy and what the author thinks is the right and wrong approach to spreading the word. I know Jack has written about successful conversions, starting with his own family. How important is it to you to be a Linux advocate? Do you feel that you've had much success introducing others to open source alternatives?
Take the poll and let us know how you see your role in being a champion of Linux and open source.
