[conspire] Using Linux in non-profits

A friend of mine is hosting a dinner this Saturday for folks who provide
technical support for non-profits. One of the things he'll be talking
about is how adapting Linux could reduce their costs and let them make
better use of the old hardware that they're saddled with.

I'm wondering if any of you have suggestions on what benefits Linux will
provide, or how to minimize the cost of adaption. He's already planning 
on talking about:

   Saving money on software licenses.
   Turning old hardware (486s/Pentium 90s) into viable systems with LTSP.
   Using Knoppix as a desktop operating system.

Is there anything else you can think of?
