I like this article by Tim Cook from FreePM about focusing on vertical


How about setting up User Groups that are based around market-sectors,
rather than the usual geographical focus?

- Zope in Medicine/Healthcare
- Zope in Universities/Education
- Zope in ....... (your market-sector)

If Zope can be shown to have a healthy market-share in different sectors,
others might look at it and think "Hmmm, there must be something to it, if
all those people are using it"


Cheers, Jon

P.S. I hate to say this, but I think making things easier for Windows-users
would help as well! Show them how to integrate with existing Windows-based
technology (like the Access example quoted earlier), and help them to gently
wean their organisation away from MS-dominance! :-)
