Hellp Leo,

I want to underline two things: first Fedora is a community based 
project and it only sponsored by Red Hat and, second, in many cities and 
countries ambassadors organize event such as installation day etc... If 
you want to organize an event you can do it and you can request 
materials such as t-shirt and dvd (you have to be a marketing or 
ambassador member for this) compiling the form.

Ubuntu is different from Fedora and, i think, this would mean that we 
have different goals (and similiar ones): this is our, and their, 
strenght. We organize, during the year, houndred and houndred of event 
everywhere, most of all are local event (e.g. suniversity event) and 
_all_ are organized by people that spend their free time talking with 
other about Fedora and Open Source.

Thanks for your opinion

Francesco Ugolini
