Subject: [Ambassadors] [Event Report] Fedora Malaysia at MOSC 2012
On 9th and 10th July 2012, Malaysia Open Source Conference (MOSC) 2012 was held in
Berjaya Time Square Hotel and Convention Center, Kuala Lumpur, and we are from Fedora
Malaysia get the oppurtunity to open our booth in to promote Fedora in that event.
Me(jurankdankkal) and Khairul Anwar (kull) organize the booth and Izhar Firdaus
(Kagesenshi) help to set up the booth at 8th July.
The participants were about 300 people, in the early morning our booth still quiet, maybe
because our booth is not interseted, we don't have anything on the table except my
laptop to Demo Fedora, some swags (pin and keychain) over FUDconKL and several fliers
about Fedora Malaysia, we do not have time to produce swags it's caused the event
organizers offer to us near the event will be held, our booth are crowded after lunch and
continued until evening, when the Fedora 17 Live CD are sent from the Red Hat Singapore
finally arrived, the people who came to our booth a variety from Fedora user, Open Source
developers, system administrators, entrepreneurs, CIOs, CTOs, expert users, strategists
and enthusiasts and even that the people does not know anything about what is Linux/Open
They are very interested in the presence of Fedora in MOSC, because on average they are a
user of Ubuntu and Windows, we explained to them that come to our booth about the latest
features in Fedora 17, why they should try to use Fedora and many more also answered their
question about Fedora.
Because of the limitations of CD's sent around 200 for that time, we only give to
people who really are interested in trying to use Fedora, so now we still have around 70
There are some good statement from the people who came to our booth :
1. I want to take a LPI exam, is there any training about Linux the Fedora Malaysia
organize, we hope Fedora Malaysia can come to our campus and give us about Linux training,
and we can provide what Fedora Malaysia need, because our campus is really interseted to
learn about Linux and Fedora especialy.
2. Good job for Fedora, so many improvement I have seen since the last time I'm used
Fedora Core and must move to windows because of the demands of work, and I think I'll
go back to try Fedora with this Fedora 17 Live CD.
3. Hopefully Fedora Malaysia can make the event even more to spread Fedora in Malaysia, as
most people know that Linux is Ubuntu.
An this is a questions from some people who do not know Fedora/Linux/Open Source :
1. Aah, Facebook are here. (Because Fedora logo is F with blue color)
2. Wow, Fedora Desktop (Gnome 3.4) looks like the iphone, can I do it like a touchscreen?
3. Why you can give this CD free and no need the Serial Number, like Suse Enterprise also
give us the CD, or this is just a trial?
4. If I want to install this, how I can install this in my windows, just like to run exe
5. I am a Ubuntu user, which you think the best I compare Ubuntu with Fedora?
Aside Fedora malaysia, there are also other open source communities such as Mozilla,
Debian, Ubuntu, BSD/NAS, Puppet, Suse Enterprise, Open Suse, Drupal, and many more.
