    Working on my two best friends, though they've both been recreational mac haters for so long that I'm not holding my breath. One of them was drooling over my PowerBook the first time he saw it though. The other one bought a bunch of software and hardware to do some audio recording on his PC and still hasn't gotten around to installing everything. I keep telling him he should take the stuff back and buy a Mini with Garage Band on it. He also has quite a bit of experience with FreeBSD and Linux and seems intrigued by the BSD core.

    Also working on my co-worker who has an old PowerBook 5300 running System 9, but he has very littel experience with OS X; however, in his previousl life, he's worked at Sun, SGI and other heavily UNIX type places and has been a Solaris server admin, etc., so he's really been showing an interest lately at the stuff I've been showing him. He's been spending all his free time looking for a place to live since he just moved to town a couple of months ago, so he hasn't had much time to play, but I suspect he'll start spending more time with it once he's settled.

    None. My brother is probably the only person I'll get to switch. I'm not even going to try to get my parents to switch - it's taken me too long to finally get them comfortable on their PCs at all, much less trying to change everything now. :hs:
