> So where's all the good anti-Microsoft propaganda?

Good point, but you need "propaganda" against proprietary software
in general, not just against Microsoft.  Otherwise all the users 
you convince could end up running WordPerfect Office on Linux, or
whatever-the-hell on Macintosh, and you'll be back where you started.
Sun is just as nasty as Microsoft -- the only difference is Sun's 
OS is more stable and all Sun's GUI attempts have been third-rate
compared to Apple, Microsoft, or even GTK.

I'm going to have to agree with Richard Stallman here:
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/microsoft.html

You might start with gnu.org for propaganda to people who are concerned
about free speech, and opensource.org for people who think that their
job requires them to think like a dull little one-dimensional economic
automaton.
