Well done. Obviously your local LUG may be active in spreading the
word generally, also you may be interested to know about Infopoint
http://infopointproject.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page (not Ubuntu
specific, but see note)
Tomorrow I am handing out Information on Open Source Software (very
much featuring Ubuntu) in my local town centre, much to the
embarrassment of other family member...... :-) But the world's best
kept software secret has got to get out *somehow*!
Note: I run an Infopoint table when possible at my local computer
fair. Ubuntu family shipit CD packs are well presented and visually
attractive and soon become the centre of attention for newbies wanting
to move from windows, making the table defacto Ubuntu infopoint!
