Ideas about how to start envangelization?

  • let him get used to not having his MS visual ide first.

    Then, slowly... he'll realize that while the ide isn't "pretty" like Windows, he doesn't have to fight it to get it to do what he said.

    You won't really have to do anything... just wait.

  • One reason that people hate switching systems is that the new one makes them feel stupid. They don't know how to get things done. Stuff that should be simple becomes a blockade. Sometimes you just have to think differently.

    Anyone who can't get over that hump will hate the new system and never go farther. So anything that you can do to make it easy to get over that hump will help.

    Further than that, be sure to be painfully honest in comparing advantages and disadvantages of the new and old system. Bend
