Haha. :)
Let's just say there are several people who favour giving out Ubuntu CDs 
and some who think it counter the aims of the day.
I am unclear about where I stand, though giving people all 3 discs might 
be my preferred stance.
In the end this is something that MFS will probably decide for itself - 
I don't particularly think it's for me to comment on.

One thing Lucy didn't mention was Free The Library[1] our mooted event 
to celebrate Software Freedom Day.

It's ambitious, but if it carries through there could be considerable 
press coverage. Take a look!

All the Best,
