    I've had people notice when I've worn an Ubuntu t-shirt and/or an Ubuntu lanyard.

    You know you're a geek when your local laptop repair guy notices that your laptop runs Ubuntu. (This happened back in 2010)

    When the IT guy in you company say "you can install Ubuntu in your desktop but then you are alone from now on!". I did install my Ubuntu anyway

    I had somebody body come up to me in a large (town-wide) crowd and say "how many people do you think knows what that means?" referring to my (black) Ubuntu hat.

    Or finding out the guys working in the coffee bar of a bookstore are Fedora users after they saw the hat and drummed up the conversation.

    I got that from our Sys Admin when he was setting up everybody with a VPN so they can work from home if need-be (business continuity).
