    Marketing genius that worked for Pepsi, lets hope it works for Ubuntu also.
    I was just envisioning the taste test commercials between Coke & Pepsi.

    Taste test commercials between: Windows & Ubuntu would be classic. Set up booths around the world with two computers one with Ubuntu, one with Windows and film it, publish it on YouTube, and have a grass roots homegrown ad campaign.
    this is simply a Thread to discuss ideas that Ubuntu users can come up with as a Grass Roots ad campaign for Ubuntu...

    What are your ideas? What has been tried? what hasn't been tried?

    I may do just that. I have alot of old unused laptops that run Ubuntu fine, Windows not so much...

    I'd give away a bunch of laptops by the end of the day after people have tried out both booths.

    A test, with a reward.

    And yes, that^^^ was a repost

    i get sad whenever no one replies to my posts too
    i guess that's one of the reasons i joined the unanswered posts team.

    now is tihs going to be a fresh install of each OS or is this a real one year later... thing where the differences really start to come out?

    Now all we need to do is take one of these many great ad ideas, get some momentum going with it and take action!
    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything don't do it.
