I'm not so sure. While a lot of the people doing the coding and such are
Linux advocates something like 80% of the downloads for Slim Server are for

I would say most users on this list are aware of Linux and the
advantages/drawbacks to using it (I myself run my slimserver on FC2) so
maybe we can go easy on the Linux evangalism.
