> Hello everyone,
> I think im going to write a lot lol.
> Ok an Ubuntu marketing agent told me about their idea of having Ubuntu
> in Libraries.
> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuInLibraries
> No, its not about installing Ubuntu in the computers but to lend Open
> source cds to their subscribed users. Actually they copied it from
> Openoffice.
> Personally its a wonderful idea because having CDS in libraries will
> affect the complete newbies mind set of fear towards linux.
> Considering the fact that librairies is a body of trust.
> This is mostly an activity done by the lug. Of course if we
> ambassadors provide enough materials/translation to.
> Im eager to do it right away in Strasbourg. But comparing to another
> distros like ubuntu,suse,etc they already have enough materials in
> their pocket. Example, live cds. I prefer to wait for Fedora to catch
> up with materials.
> Let's take for example, Fedora. If a lug happens to realise this
> project. Among other distros we will only have handouts and Fedora
> DVDs. Meanwhile students or anyone will prefer to give a try to live
> cds, leaving Fedora behind. Saying that this particular live distro is
> based on Fedora isn't enough for the complete newbies. It would rather
> be useless. If someone tried the "official" fedora LIVE cd if he/she
> likes it he/she can easily get the install DVD for free for their
> local lug or lug ambassador or from the library directly.

> Since in the last 3 meetings (see
> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Schedule ) we didn't really
> progress in Emails, funds, Schwag because we are waiting for
> additional info. I suggest we talk and plan about this idea. I know
> ambassadors from India or Brazil will have alot to say :))
> I know we (majority)ambassadors we only popped in during meetings
> hours, talk and talk. This sounds like acting. Its time to move A55 :)
> for REAL action.
