Good for you.
The culture change can begin very close to home also with
- being sure to introduce the subject of Open Source and Ubuntu into
relevant conversations with family and friends.
- being able to offer to help install open source apps for friends who
are not PC literate
- consider encouraging or helping your more PC adventurous friends to
install Ubuntu - they will often be sort of thinking of linux,
but since they have lived with windows for years, it will be
reassuring to have someone using linux to discuss issues initially.
