Following up from an earlier post, the presentation from Microsoft was not only shown to Best Buy employees but was also shown to employees from Staples and Office Depot. However, that's not the most important part, and that's why I made an entirely new post rather than updating the old post.
This is why.
As it turns out, there are many employees at these stores who do use Linux regularly and love it. Their jobs essentially forbid them to speak of it.
Yes, there are Geek Squad people who love Linux.
The issue is that a lot of money for Best Buy comes from Microsoft. This is why employees at these stores only demonstrate Linux on an individual and almost-secret level.
So please, go to these stores and start politely asking about Linux. When the employees listen, they'd be more than happy to share in the excitement.
