why linux might be a tough sell in some markets ...

and just in time for those of you who need a little chuckle this morning, i present an excerpt from a 2002 article, showing why trying to sell linux as cheaper/more reliable/more secure, etc. to IT might not work if you're dealing with truly luddite computerphobes. i have removed all identifying info from this snippet, to let you imagine what effect this individual had on his new organization -- i'll post full, identifying info later. "Former XXX Director XXXXXXX XXXXXX was himself notoriously technology-averse -- he had the computer removed from his office when he took over XXXXXX, and he never began using email. When he left in June 2001, the standard issue XXXXXX computers were 386 or 486 PCs -- machines that were obsolete by the mid-1990s." rday
