1) Mention or talk about Ubuntu at least once per day to someone who 
uses Windows. Not in a pushy way, but maybe almost in passing. It 
raises awareness about an alternative for Windows.

2) The next step is to create an eager need in the potential customer. 
We do not have to do much for this because I think MS is often working 
for us in this regard.
