	I don't know what you'll think, but perhaps the way we Debian users could
promote Debian to our colleagues is by referring the old W95 way, that is
'everything happy and easy' but also making remember them the horror
stories they had with that stuff. Actually with Corel Linux happens the
same, so they don't want to suffer more, do they?

	So some sacrifice is needed in order to get a decent OS, with the rewards
and transparency mentioned in previous messages.

	The only event that could damage this debianist attitude for brave desktop
users could be if M$ releases something decent with their future mixture of
2000 and 98 (hope it's the same DOS-W integration they did with 9X!)


	I believe in the mouth-to-ear promotion.



	Hope you find it interesting,
