Smile Open source promotion web site


Hi all I am putting together a web site to promote Open source software and Linux based Operating systems initially it was to be aimed at charities but after considering small businesses I have opened it up to be more general but I feel strongly that charities etc are wasting large amounts of there IT budget when they could be looking at other options like Open source.
I have made a start with my limited web design skills with ALL Open source tools (GIMP, Kompozer etc) bu need information on company's that use Open source and recommendations etc etc mainly (but not exclusively) on Windows Open source as that would be the most used and quickest way to introduce Open source to people.
Any help would be appreciated though thanks in advance.

Here's a couple of links that might be of use.

http://opensourcewindows.org/
http://www.osalt.com/

Totally agree about the charitable organisations wasting money thing.

Please don't bump threads if you don't personally have any information to add. To do so is against the forum rules. And yes, this applies to threads that you started yourself.

BTW, nashir has been reported as a bot.
