When talking to people about Free Software, the discussion always leads to a point where I'm trying to convince the person I'm talking to that Open Source software is better for a business than proprietary software. And by business I don't just mean a company selling or developing software, I mean any company.

Justin Steinman is Novell’s PR chief, spreading the SuSe Linux gospel and the benefits of the deal with Microsoft both at home in the US and abroad.
