Heh; I can see that I phrased that a bit ambiguously.

But it does occur to me that Apple might be missing a  good
sales approach:  Just lend an iBook or Powerbook to someone
for a few hours, maybe with a bit of instruction on how  to
use some of its sound and video apps. If they've been using
Windows, chances are they'll be back soon, demanding to pay
for the Mac.

Might not work with experienced linux/unix users, though.
