As part of our burden to those Others, when I travel overseas I try to make some presentation for the local Computer Science kids, of course on the benefits of FLOSS.

I also carry a couple outdated original Microsoft CDs, and have those go around the room. Most usually no one in the room including the professors and IT staff had ever ever before touched a real holographic pretty CD from Redmond, this is the first time in their lives. Of course the Universities there are 100% Windows, etc.

(Actually that's the worst environment for FLOSS. Pirated is so cheap and widespread that, why bother?)
