Josh has finished up designing a flyer that we would like to
distribute for the November 10th Gutsy install fest. You can download
it and see it under "Gutsy Gibbon Install Fest" at

We would like to distribute these to bookstores, coffee shops,
libraries, schools and colleges, mom & pop computer stores, and big
electronic retail stores if possible.

If you have a printer, print them out and put them up everywhere.

Josh will be bringing some printed out flyers to Rick's Ubuntu Server
talk at ALE Thursday night, so you can grab some from him if you will
be attending.

If you blog, please post the flyer (or the smaller resized image from
the wiki page above) and a link to the wiki
( or to If you are part of LUG, see if they can
post about it as well.


PS. Brian beat to me it already, but here it is again: Rick will be
talking about the Ubuntu Server distribution at the ALE meeting
Thursday, Oct 11th, 7:30pm, at Emory.

Discussions will also include details of the strategic partnerships that
