    InstallFest Flyer (ideas wanted)

    Soup!
    so ive been working on this flyer and i need to see how everyone feels about it. id also like some input for new ideas to add and maybe other modifications. if anything looks familiar i basically took ideas from other flyers and meshed it together in a way i thought would be enticing and upstanding.
    so my idea was to have this be a full sized flyer in color to be eye catching. in thinking this i thought it would be cool to make the flyer look similar to a semi-custom desktop. if you can catch my drift i added the dock at the bottom which should have some text labelling the icons to show what linux can do and the basic apps it has. i cant think of anything else to type so thats my current idea. andything else you guys can come up with will be appreciated. please let me know.

    So these are some of the ideas all in one i have. There are multiple versions i have as well. You may see them at http://s13.photobucket.com/albums/a262/delawilbur/ if you wish. I'd like all the input i can get. Eddie belives it looks too busy which I somewhat aggree with *BUT* i want this to be community effort not just one or two people. So with a combined knowledge base I think it can turn out swell.

    this is a flier I did for the Marketing Team, that I think would have uses on the LoCo team level. The file is a ping.

    so this is a slightly revised vresion again. there may be spelling errors and sentences that could be better.
    maybe theres something we can take out to make more room for a date|location or maybe give a little more info about what an installfest is. please let me know

    I think that the flier looks great there are just a couple of grammatical things that stuck out at me.well actually just one that I saw. under the longevity section the last sentence says "You wallet and the environment will thank you." Shouldn't it be "Your wallet and the environment will thank you"? I know that it's just missing an "r" but i thought i could put my 2 cents worth in. Other than that though i think it looks great.

    The Note that was included in the what's new section needs to be in the flier but i dont know if it should be in that paticular spot. might be able to create another section to mention some examples of what people would need to bring. something like this:
    What Should I Bring?
    You will need all the components for your computer to provide the best experience. This includes not only the computer itself but monitor, keyboard, mouse, and other things you might want to try.

    just thought i would give an example of what i was thinking. It can be changed and hashed down or whatever but i think it would flow better as something like that.
