    No. Just think of the club, how many people will join for something they basically know zero about, maybe 1 or 2 people will know about linux, and they might just have ubuntu anyways. I was thinking about just making a poster, asking whoever is incharge to post them on the inside walls of the school, and get some sort of basket attached to it containing the cd's.

    I think Linux should keep on doing just what it's been doing. Linux is for Linux users. If Windows users want to switch, fine. If not, they can keep doing what they have doing and we'll keep doing what we've been doing and we'll all be happy.

    Opensuse, and Mandiva are easier?

    Please first try Arch Linux, Slackware, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris and the like, and then come back
    Either way, I want Microsoft to go down, and they easiest way to do that would be to spread the word about the easiest to use F/OSS operating system out there: Ubuntu.
    You want Microsoft to go down ?
    That's easy in 2009, you don't have to do anything, Microsoft is bringing themselves down with Vista, firing employees and then wanting money back from them, and starting to sue companies over Linux implementations.

    Apart from that, I'm all for spreading the word of Linux in a timely and efficient way.
    Imho that means that if people are not really interested in Linux, and don't have enough spare time for it, and don't bother to buy hardware that is compatible with Linux, then they don't get my support or time, at least not anytime soon.

    I would like to note that Best Buy already sells Ubuntu. They're not going to give it out for free.

    Wow. Thanks, Grant, for assuming I don't read.
