Re: [seul-edu] RE: selling Linux

I agree that selling by evanglising may not be successful.  Linux is the tool, not the end.  If you have a compelling product for the customer that runs well in Linux and cost a lot less than windows, that is a good sale. Pitching how Linux is better than windows in general may be a good evanglical exercise, but may not be a good sale.
