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.
