How *not* to advocate Linux

In an interesting article – this time not from National Review – there’s a good discussion on why Linux isn’t getting the kind of mainstream acceptance that it deserves. Bad advocacy is one of the main reasons why Linux is looked at as a non-mainstream OS. Just as in a political campaign, the quality of your campaign is only as good as the quality of your activists. While there a good number of very good Linux advocates, a lot of work needs to be done to keep Linux’s image in the positive if it is to effectively counter the Microsoft juggernaut.
