(A) As a suggestion for the next time I think that as we used only the
right part of the stand we could do in the left part something like a
game or a presentation in wider screen. If it's a game we could give
away things like t-shirts who were asked a few times, or other things.
(B) The talks were always friendly and I enjoyed it. The best part was
when the people was amazed by what linux could do freely vs. to
windows and all proprietary programs like photoshop.
(C) The visitors they were for the most part of it bussiness men
looking to change their way of doing things, which is a good point.
(D) They most wanted to know if all programs they are using in windows
could be used in linux, or replaced by other ones. They also were very
interested by the retro-compatibility between Microsoft Office and
(E) We had several distros installed who was good, but only on pc.
what we could do it have a least one mac to show people that it
doesn't work only on pc's but also on mac.
(F) I think that the cd's are essential, and more than installation
cd's live cd's can really give the visitors a quick look at was they
would have if they install it. Because at first they're not very
interested to touch to their precious windows. I had several people
who were very concerned if the cd was not going to fuck up their windows.
Ok I think it's all for the moment, It was really nice to be with you
all, I had a really good time.
