Hi all!

Happy New Year and all that.

I am trying to encourage more people to use Linux and OpenOffice etc. (as we
all are I am sure!) and I was wondering if any of you have written a "What
is this Linux thing and how does it al work" type documents in plain
non-technical language as we would like to put some documents about Linux on
a new website we have set up.

Sorry if this is kind of non-technical.

I'll be at the RevolutionOS shindig if anyone wants to chat about it.
