    svn version of beryl has a screensaver plugin that would start rotating the cube i guess with a skydom setup, the rain effect, the transparency and some other features that don't need interaction you could setup a good show off.. now what's left would be installing svn.. or getting the plugin running on current version..
    good luck

    I sell Ubuntu boxes, I always do 3 things:

    1. Add ubuntuforums.org to their bookmark toolbar.
    2. I make my own disks to give out, just be sure to make them look nice.
    3. I print out the free Ubuntu book https://help.ubuntu.com/6.10/

    I wouldn't beat people over the head with it not being windows. Say it's linux, of course, but there's no reason you could get in trouble for not saying "OH MY GOD IT ISN'T WINDOWS", anymore than honda should say "JUST SO YOU KNOW THESE AREN'T GM PARTS."

    You can get official CDs and stickers by using the shipit service, for free.
