I saw it exhibited at last year's Linux Expo - looked pretty
incredible.  Also, apparently SUSE 9.0 comes with a whole bunch of
professional sound software which they developed mostly in-house - this
is just from a cursory glance at the review in the new Linux Format mag
- maybe you should pick up a copy.

There are plenty of Linux users in and around Watford, myself included,
and there are quite a few at my church too.

When it comes to winning friends over, have you tried demonstrating to
them how they can do pretty well everything to do with Windows a lot
better and a lot cheaper with Linux?
