It seems to run faster than windows, alot more stable, and easier for me to fix.

Explain to them that, as well as the lacking program support and the fact that they have to learn how to use it properly and let them decide for themselves.

There are reasons why Microsoft still has and retains a majority of the workstation market share. Those reasons far outweigh a slight increase in speed, stability and the fact that it's easier for you.

true but open source is free, the point in questions still remains, how can I get them to try it for themselves?

I would show it to them on your own laptop, give a demonstration of what it can do for them on a "lesser" system as far as giving them more for less.
