Take a lot of aspirin with you to these presentations. You're gonna need it!  Grin

Just be careful with that aspirin. It seems innocuous, but a sufficiently high dose can cause liver toxicity.
On the same note beware of the amount of water you drink to take the aspirin since high amounts of water can cause water toxicity and prove to be fatal.

Couldn't resist Grin

BTW, saulgoode has some fantastic ideas on your presentation - very good points and well thought out.

The dosage is a lot different. For water, you'd have to drink many liters before onset of illness (due to severe imbalance of electrolytes). Aspirin or acetaminophen (which is a little different) is significantly easier to overdose on, and can cause acute or chronic illness as a result.

Another point about trying to get government entities to switch to Linux:
A lot of government agencies have strict rules about accessibility for people with all kinds of handicaps. Some of these require voice recognition for operating a computer or other adaptations for people with handicaps.

I know nothing about what's available for Linux, but in reading discussions among people who *do* know about this, it seems Linux isn't there yet. Voice recognition has to be deep and available as a system function. The deficiencies of Linux in this regard have kept some government entities from adopting Linux.

Just so you're prepared in case the topic comes up...
