I kinda disagree...

They are setting up / have setup a LUG - They probably know linux is cost free at least.

Maybe when I get round to writing my review of Free as in Freedom - generously donated by OReilly, we can send them a copy of that. :)

In short, education is good, but I think they'd be focused on cost, so I wouldn't put too much effort in, on the other hand - they have at least heard of linux.

I think this is probably right - they remind me of the LowTech
organisation that exists in Sheffield. I wonder if they are trying
to give away cheap/free computers, did a search for "free software" and
came across the FSFE?

If that is the case, it is unlikely that they came seeking Free
Software, but I guess we can educate them all the same :) Putting them
in touch with LowTech in Sheffield might be useful, since it is a
similar organisation.
