I hope you don't understand me wrong with this participation, but I
think it's one of the best Linux promotional videos I've ever seen and
does fit a wide audience. I know it's Fedora, and though I'm a Fedora
Marketing contributor, we weren't even aware of it.

Please notice that openSUSE does offer different value perceived by the
users, and has trump cards like OpenOffice Novell Edition that are
pretty nice. This video is Goddard and GNOME, which also is interesting
if we look by Novell's/OpenSUSE view because once more we applications
like Evolution that are nice.

I would probably fit also somewhere AppArmor ;)

Anyway, this is a just a though on how we can keep simplicity and
deliever a powerful message to our audiences. This video was made by
Russian Fedora (, and from my scope of view
it's the best I've seen promoting Linux.


Yes ! this definitely gave us an idea. But the concept which I provided
(previous mail), I want to bring in more human touch to it , that said
more of faces in the video . As 11.2 Video showed something like that ,
definitely not like the fedora :-) . So yes it will help us create a
better one .

Let us know if you have some thing to help with or would like to share
more :-)
PS: My goal is not advertising Fedora, just show work from one of our
contributors and eventually show that simplicity can bring finesse and
pass a powerful message. Some references of interest:

I got you :-)
