That is very good donald,
Sometimes you need to keep working then others will follow
Keep working and promoting Ubuntu at home, in church, in schools,
govt..everywhere and a time will come when you will not need to tell
people to use Ubuntu or GNU/Linux in general, it will be just a natural
choice.I'm a witness.
I have installed Ubuntu for so many users (and all the time for FREE
because I just want to help) and people just keep coming for Ubuntu. IT IS
Even today (Sat Jan 16, 2010) someone called me and he wants Ubuntu (I had
helped him sometime last year to recover data from his USB drive).
Yesterday I installed Ubuntu 9.10 to some one in my church (who is also a
lecture at the University of Dar es Salaam). The interesting thing is, as
I was doing it, another UDSM staff, a lady (also a member of our church)
came to sit with us, and the guy i was helping started talking to the lady
and telling her how good Ubuntu is.
To me, it just part of my life now!! Normal users are now promoting Ubuntu
because they know how usefull it is.
Seminars, workshops and various forms of gatherings are important but they
lack of them (for some reasons) should not keep us from doing what we
believe in doing (MAKING PEOPLE USE FOSS BECAUSE IT IS GOOD FOR THEM)
We can work together and release 'Ubuntu UhuruKamiri' as the swahili
version of Ubuntu. Just share your ideas about how you have done it and
let others work with you.
