I know a chap who's the IT guy for a huge Real Estate group. He has rolled
out Firefox/OpenOffice and the Gimp across all branches dumping IE/MS
Office and Photoshop in the process.

Most Windows using workers didnt even notice, and those (few) that
complained were told "thats how it is now, get used to it".

If we wish to reduce our ignorance, there are people we will
indeed listen to.  Trolls are not among those people, as trolls, more or
less by definition, *promote* ignorance.
