Already done WRT this particular charity. I wrote to the director, and
I gather so did hundreds of others offering opensource solutions. Within
days we had the first confirmation that they were talking with top-tier
opensource solution providers.
This is just one more case (the recent slew of municipalities who've
received their BSA demands for MS-software audits are another) where I
believe we should all fax Bill Gates some flowers and thank him for
making our side of the restaurant that much bigger.
