Show kdevelop,python, perl etc=20
Other platforms come with compiler-free distros.
Linux on the other hand comes with tons of free-compiler(s).

I feel you should show lot of screenshot pictures of:

1/ different destop window managers (KDE, Gnome,
Icewm, Fluxbox, Sawfish, xfce, ...)

2/ different application software (xmms, mplayer,
xine, kaffeine, GAIM [running yahoo, msn protocols],
gimp, gkrellm,...)=20

3/ different distros (gentoo, red hat, suse, mandrake,
fedora core,...)

to quickly give them a good idea of what Linux is all
about! A picture is equal to a 1000 words :)

range of audience to
try linux. unfortunately it is a twenty minute
presentation so i dont
have too much time. and its on the coming tuesday.
so i'd appreciate all
the help i can get in getting data together.one the
things that
impressed me in the last linux bangalore conference
was this display
that i think nat had put up. he had come up with OS
market share data
from google (whihc i'm looking for real hard but
cant fin, so please
anyone...) and then he had placed that in a pie of
world human
population. i need that data. if someone can find
it, please mail me
asap.

anymore ideas like that that i can use will be real
useful. or if
there's people who have made this kinda presentation
reading that would
help too i guess.
