Suggestions for Migrating to Open Source Software


I am a student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. My major is Management Information Systems with a minor in Marketing Management and another minor in Techinical Communication. I am enrolled in a Persuasive Speech class this term. I have to present three speeches following Aristotle's ethos, pathos, and logos. These speeches have to be focused towards my major. My first speech will make a logical appeal for migrating towards open source software. I have a few ideas of what I want to say. The last statement will be something to the effect of, "by the way, this entire presentation was presented using only open source software; from the slide-show to the operating system". I will present the speech using Open Office probably running on SuSE Linux. I am interested to see what other people think should be included, said, and done. If you are interested I can send you the slide-show after I present the topic.

Just a side note, I still consider myself a newbie to Linux.
