You have your power as an individual. Use Linux, demonstrate Linux to
friends, family, and colleagues; burn copies and disseminate them across the
neighbourhood. Ensure that people's skills are unaffected by what gets
orchestrated from above. It is /people/ who ultimately choose what O/S they
use at work. The government is composed of people too.
