LinuxWorld: Evangelist advises on preparing Linux pitch

Michael S. Mimoso writes "If you don't know your stuff, don't go ahead and pitch Linux and open source software (OSS) to your "closed-source" IT shop and company. "You'd better know your facts and have experience in the OSS world," said Matt Asay, chairman of Novell's Linux Business Office & Open Source Review Board. "Gather data, both quantitative and qualitative." He's followed his own advice, serving as General Manager at Lineo, an embedded Linux software startup, as well as Novell. He also spent three years studying software licensing and innovation Stanford Law School, where he earned a doctorate."
