They are friends and members of a non-computer group I belong to.  I
have talked to them about my adventures with Linux.  They asked that I
take 10 - 12 minutes at the next meeting (tonight) to tell them about
Linux.  The group is a Toastmasters group, but the speech is by request
not because it is an assigned project.  I want to do it right.

Yes.  The audience is split between people in their mid-20s to mid-30s
and those over 50 years of age.

Yes it does make a big difference.  Who knows what the future holds?

No.  Not in a short-term concrete way.  Although I am building myself a
bit of a guru reputation with my peers (the over 50 part of the group)
--undeserved as that may be-- which for vanity reasons I would like to

Regards Bill
