I'm working on promoting Ubuntu here in Bloem(fontein). People seem to be afraid of discovering the unknown. But once you get their attention you grab it furiously
There's a couple of people I know that would use Ubuntu, but they are not eager to use forums or mailing lists. Working on that.
So I hope to provide some good news later on.
well, I successfully converted 2 people to Ubuntu. My boss in Capetown, and another friend in Gauteng! so it's coming along. They have yet to join any forum/IRC channel
