The vast majority of people have no idea what open source is. I recently
put Open Office on a fellow's machine and he said "This is great, it's
better than Office, I'll buy it immediately, How much?".
I still don't think he believes me that it's free, he thinks I stole it
somehow, because that's the only way he's ever heard of to get "free"
All of us on this list often forget that over 90% of computer users have
never seen or even heard of anything but Windows, and if they have it
was a Mac.
Things are changing, but slowly.
