I found a presentation that was given about OBS at FOSDEM I think
was. But it was really not designed for someone like me to pick
and run with it. I ended up just picking a few slides from that
doing a live demo.
I don't think presentations are the main thing. They are onloy used
The most effective way of promotion is *free dvd*. openSUSE is a
good distribution. Most people using it keep it, but they have to first get a hand on it. Downloading a new distro is not that usual
beginners, trying a live dvd is.
basic things like sticker, are also very usefull. Don't
old gadgets :-).
Ubuntu made it's success with cd donation. Of course it can be
expensive, so better use the ambassador channel. Any ambassador
receive 20 or 50 free dvd as subscription gift :-)
Yes that sounds really good.Also I feel instead of sponsoring in/the Open Source events (by Novell), the money should be utilized in this direction. That is -
- Event Kit (may be costly,but better than sponsoring events)
- Ambassador T-shirts
- and so on . . .
P.S - To be honest , I hardly care who sponsors an event (When I
them,Until its something I have to do with in personal) , its just
freebies or some worthy stuff I take along when I leave ;)
Ugh let's not spend money that's not really on the table here =)
I >prefer Novell to employ hackers working on different parts in the opensource
stack and making it visible they are doing so, Novells reputation here
not reflect their actual investment here I think, though it's not as
Canonical in this regard ;-)
Not only DVD's, Stickers/posters. Event kits, ambassador t-shirts, but neither only hacking guys.
We need to find a way to have a balanced investment. I like the idea of Novell be sponsor of some hackers, but let's remember this was done before for Samba Team, AppArmor Team, Mono Team...... My question is what happens with all of this investments. Not all of them but most part of my friends from SAMBA, AppArmor and Mono, is not working for Novell anymore !!! Someone have the answers for this questions? Why Novell decided to not run anymore with this Hack guys?
