The booths were in a different place from previous years, and we had a lot more visitors. We gave out all the flyers we brought by Saturday evening – there was only one left for Sunday – so we gave out Mageia stickers instead. We did not sell any T-shirts, but we sold two USB sticks.
Many people asked for general information; I spoke so much that I lost my voice! We had strong interest, coming from people already using a Linux distribution as well as from people wishing to turn to free software.
For myself, at a communication level, I am very satisfied by this week end. I must thank the people who were with me: Alex, Kevin and Sayat. They really helped me, because I couldn’t have managed these days alone.
The next exhibition will be probably the “Capitol du Libre” in Toulouse (Southern France). If you’re interested in helping me to run the booth, please don’t hesitate to say so.
Thank you Dtux, and above all, anyone wanting to join him in November at Toulouse please introduce yourselves, with a comment on this blog, by a message in the MLO French forum, or by posting to the discuss-fr mailing list .
