Ubuntu – Need some advise on pitching Ubuntu SBS and desktops for the company


In the next couple of weeks I need to present an IT presentation for future I equipment for the small company I would with. The have been shrouded by the Microsoft and Apple blanket and introducing Ubuntu to them is going to be a tough task.

Can anyone give me some advise who has had the task of pitching Ubuntu for business being the favourable OS over Windows which they are currently using? I will say none of them are tech-savvy and some of them don't even know how to send emails.

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
