Dear all,

I was called today by ScotlandIS to find out if I knew any "Field Experts" in
Open Source to go against Brad Tipp from Microsoft for a re-run of the last
debate in Edinburgh, which was Microsoft vs IBM Linux.

They need advice on the best OSS expert to ask to go against Brad this time in

I suggested we get a panel of 3, Microsoft can easily get another 2 marketing
guys for their panel.

I suggested one from all the LUGs, one from a Business/Businesses and one from
Schools or the like? Maybe someone like Bob Kerr?


This is to be in August sometime?

There will be more Q&A time this time too.
