    Question Ways to convince a library to use GNU/Linux?

    Does anyone have any good ideas (Both ethical and practical) to convince a library to (At least) let users choose which operating system they can use?

    Im sure it would be much harder than just asking any ol' library, to sit down and listen to what you have to say. Start at the Main Branch if you are serious

    Of course the first thing they will likely say, is bring your own computer, and run whatever you like.

    What would their incentive to change be?

    What do you need to do on a library computer that you can't do with Windows?

    Certainly though, being a public place, it would be nice to see use of open-sourced means. Can't hurt to ask, if you can manage an audience.

    It is not a simple process.

    All our libraries still run Windows XP.

    SB X-Fi 2 Sound (8ch) - Intel 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet - Win 8 Pro. x64
