My take is that I tend only to evangelise if:
1. Software is not currently in use for a task but is required - if the
user has no experience of the task in hand, then they are likely to
trust my judgment and be happy with what I suggest
2. Software is currently being used, but is actively causing trouble
that I know will be resolved by a change e.g Outlook Express is unable
to terminate cleanly in mid download and this has caused real tangible
and time-consuming problems. Thurderbird doesn't have this problem.
