Hi Ricardo,

My work as ambassador for this event is going to be completed if I can
attend the next year and check (using the same questionaire) that
openSUSE was spreaded. If I "stole" a couple of users from Ubuntu (the
most popular according to the survey) I'll be happy ;-)

Sadly, I'm not going to attend Encuentro Linux because of my job. I
hope some people can organize an openSUSE stand, that can help a lot.
Good luck on your presentation.

Hi Francisco,

Thanks for sharing the experience. You have really done a great job.
Now I wonder if you are attending Encuentro Linux this year. I am
going to give a talk out there, sadly (and don't know why!) my
openSUSE proposals didn't make it so it will be over PySide. So far I
have talked with Luis about requesting openSUSE stuff for the event.
Let's make this one big event for the green ! Are you in? Let us know,
please =)
