Hi Jack,

I'm the least esteemed member, so it's easy enough for me to reply first :)

It would be great for you go give it a go given your working knowledge!

As for canned presentations, hmmm, that's a good question. There are a
couple of good books - "Ubuntu Hacks" by Oxer, Rankin, and Childers and also
"Ubuntu for Non-Geeks 2nd Edition" by Grant that provide plenty of organized
material. It would be easy enough to make a presentation. (There is an
excellent introductory Ubuntu video by Shuttleworth speaking at Google about
the merits of Ubuntu. It would make great advance viewing for your meeting

Personally, I'd be interested in the meeting - it would be great to hear /
see what other people are thinking about this. From the sounds of the
audience, they would be pretty self-sufficient getting up and running with
Ubuntu with only a little bit of encouragement.

If others on this list would consider it, I'd be interested in car-pooling
down to Providence for the meeting.
