You mean we like tweaking our OS and they like reinstalling theirs.

Grant it, Linux is not for everyone, and there is software that people 
need to use that's only available on Windows.  But this is the exception 
to the case when talking about your standard office environment.  Most 
folks need a word processor, email, browser.

For those folks where there is a one for one replacement for Windows 
apps, there's no reason they shouldn't consider Linux.
