[News] Advise for Advancing GNU/Linux in the Eyes of Less Technical Folks

Hash: SHA1

How to convert non-techies to Linux.

,----[ Quote ]
| Eyecandy is also very important. Most new and non technical users are not 
| interested in code. What they see is the GUI. Make their distro look very 
| cool and pretty and they will fall in love with it. You can get themes from 
| Gnomelook.org. Lots of people like Apple computers because of aesthetics. 
| This might seem superficial to you but we are talking about the non technical 
| users switching over to Linux. Another great application is Compiz. If their 
| computer is powerful enough you can give them excellent eyecandy with compiz. 
| With themes and cool 3D effects you will be able to make their Linux desktop 
| nicer than Windows or Mac OS. Show them a little razzle dazzle.        



Advocating Linux in the Classroom

,----[ Quot ]
| Linux shirts, caps, etc. Just the presence of those items will make people
| more aware of its existence. And if you make a really awesome design, people
| will talk to you about it and ask what itâs all about. A conversation starter
| that could let someone know about Linux and maybe even get him/her interested
| to try it out.


Microsoft: Sorry, you can't use these vouchers to learn Linux
