View Full Version : A Simple Ubuntu Flyer?

August 20th, 2008, 04:31 AM
Where can I get a simple (preferrably one-page) flyer or leaflet that explains what Ubuntu is for the non-technical people?
I found one for Kubuntu in ~/Examples, and saw oo-welcome.pdt, but I wanted something more like Kubuntu's leaflet. And maybe if there's some for other distro's, for future reference.

My family is having a garage sale soon, and I managed to throw together two working computers (i386: 1.2GHz - 256MB RAM - 20GB and 1.4GHz - 2GB RAM - 80GB, standard stuff) that they're going to sell for dirt cheap - my mom just wants to get rid of them.
I would like to take advantage of this small opportunity and make a small attempt to spread Ubuntu. I'm at college right now, and the computers are at home, but I've already shown my little brother (12 years old) how to use DBan on the two boxes, and he already knows how to install Ubuntu, burn disks, etc. He's pretty excited about being able to show off computer stuff to people, and it would be great for someone who might just want a basic computer to have the flyer just to look over and say, "Hey, look! I think it's Windows, and it has stuff that's like Word and Internet Explorer! And it's free!"
If there's a link, I'll just send it to my brother to print out.

how about this? http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/804features/

if you are ab;e to have these machines powered on at the sale, you could even load that page in Firefox and hit F11 so you'd turn them into little psuedo kiosks.

Promote GNU-Linux / Ubuntu in you e-mails

Add the following to your signature:


<a href="http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/904features/"><img src="http://img233.yfrog.com/img233/7348/ubuntulogoformailen2.png" width="500" height="50"></a>

You could also say: "This mail has been sent without using privative software"

or build a similar thing for yourself or in your language or make it link to somewhere else.
