Nice one!

Which arguments did you use to convince them? I'm always interested in 
this: did Linux's technical excellence appeal to them, or did the 
ethical angle of free software appeal more, or were they more motivated 
by getting away from MS brokennesses like viruses and spam and popup 
windows? Or something else entirely?

People who have convinced others to switch to Linux: how did you do it? 
What did you tell them, and what did they think?
