"...what the Linux world needs is a Steve Jobs like person who can hype, evangelise whilst at the same time, not come accross as some sort of elitist wanker - which, sorry, alot of IT oriented guys come accross, with their, 'we're better than normal people!' complex. "

Yes, thank god the typical Mac users aren't elitist wankers, and that they don't give you the "we're better than normal people!" attitude. Your statement must be one of the most ironic statements I've ever seen. ;-)

PS! I'm a Mac user, BTW.

Pardon? I don't see Steve Jobs walking around, flexing his 'IT knowledge muscles' in front of customers (or there lack of them), he markets to customers which throws away the IT jargon and gets to the core of the issue.

Sorry, IT people *DON'T*, *NEVER HAVE* and *NEVER WILL* understand that if you need to pitch and idea to management, leave your IT jargon at home, and cater the presentation to what they're interested - how can YOUR product reduce THEIR costs; What can YOUR product do better than the competition; What can YOUR company achieve that the competition CAN'T.

These are things management want to know - leave the IT orientated jargon to your user and developer manuals, and let your customers IT team sort the rest of it out.
