Corporate Reactions to Linux (fwd)

Hi there,

of course that might be stupid, but everybody who tries to 
implement Linux and/or samba has to be aware of the fact that 
people are very sceptical about these "hacker systems". People 
are forgiving about NT for whatever reason, but if the same happens 
to something new they just discard it. So, whenever I had to 
convince my employers of Linux (or something else they didn't 
know), I tested very thoroughly to avoid situations like the one 
I'm convinced that Linux is the better OS, but NT is established. 
And especially those who have never dealt with Linux will defend 
their beloved NT and kick Linux's butt for the slightest reason.
