My hat off for your efforts advocating Linux.
I can't give you my insights on any Windows shortcomings 'cause I've
never used this OS extensively.
However, based on my experience converting other non-technical people
to Linux/BSD, I would say that it's a rather dead bid, unless these
people are in a real need for another OS.
Look, it took just to months to convert our whole eng. dept.
(40 people) to Linux.
May I inquire
a) What sort of engineering department are we talking about
(mechanical, electrical, structural)?
b) What critical design software packages does your group use and what
windows-based packages did you have to abandon?
