Excellent Marketing from Ubuntu
As a Gentoo user for a lot of years now, I’ve not been trying other distros but I’ve heard about the ‘end’ of RedHat and read how Fedora was born as well as a lot of other tales on Linux Distros. More recently there has been a lot of fuss about the Ubuntu Linux Distro and while reading an article online I noticed Ubuntu was shipping CDs free of charge and I though to myself “How is this possible???”. But it is true!!!
I could not resist the fact to ask for some, not only for my personal curiosity but also to distribute to my most eager students. I’m sure they will like a Linux CD at the end of the semester.
One thing I’m sure, it’s difficult to beat this kind of merchandising… Hope Gentoo opens its eyes ASAP.
