Advertising with Helios

,----[ Quote ]
| The idea of the radio adverts was to be able to increase 
| the business of installing and supporting âLinuxâ based 
| desktop computers in the Texas, Dallas area. This could 
| then be considered a reasonable investment of money into 
| advertising as radio ads are expensive for the average 
| bloke on the street.


All it takes is marketing ("branding"). The software is superb.

Linux Software Picks: Six Alternatives to Photoshop

| Phatch offers batch processing capabilities; if you need to 
| apply effects like sharpen, add border, etc. to many images 
| at once, it would normally take hours if you had to do it 
| manually. In contrast, Phatch can process entire 
| directories at once in minutes. Alternatively, Phatch 
| offers drag-and-drop processing. Phatch may not be a tool 
| you use every day, but it is invaluable in the situations 
| where you do need it.



Linux on the Air - or Not?

| Got Linux? A radio ad touting the benefits of "Linux" is airing
| on a station in Austin, Texas, but is it a good idea? There's no
| "Linux" OS, after all -- there are specific distros, points out
| Monochrome Mentality blogger Kevin Dean, and some of them are
| "LESS functional than Windows." On the show-a-little-enthusiasm
| side, Kevin Pogson believes the ad "will change someone's life
| for the better."


The Grand Experiment - Linux Ads on Radio

| We fielded 179 phone calls, 63 emails and 4 personal visits of
| inquiry from the ads. There are three categories in which I
| have placed these communications.
