How about writing to local politicks and keep an eye out for crap from M$ to 
react with an response in the direction of any decission-maker you know.
Sometimes this way of venting can give you a feeling of; "I do something I 
believe in". IMO it is one of the best things people can do. At least in the 
beginning. In the mean time one can just swaer at M$ stuff at work, help 
people convince to try Linux at home and get known as Mr. Linux ;-)

Just my little CV ;-)

As said above ;-)
