Not to overstate the obvious, but who would you feel if someone crash your Karmic launch party thrusting a Windows 7 laptop in your face? Confrontation has its place in advocacy, but you aren't going to win converts by being a jerk.

Subject: Re: [ubuntu-us-ma] Wednesday Evenings
I had some ideas for evangelizing Ubuntu. Microsoft is setting up
Windows 7 parties, where people have meet-ups to evangelize Win 7. I
was thinking of taking a laptop and crashing the parties to show them
how they could get all this cool software for free. We could take
Ubuntu disks and give them away at the windows 7 parties.
We'll show people that they can run the disk w/out installing if they
wish, and when ready do a dual-boot install, keeping Win around for a
while longer...until they're ready to get rid of it for good.
