It would be great if we can the big Big names in linux, and maybe some small names to broad cast linux commercials during the event as well, especially for desktop linux (Dell this could be you). That way viewers will hear the name and then find out what it is.

I think the Novell ads that parody the mac ads would be a great thing to run during commercial breaks.

Maybe if some of the distributors on the database could get some money together to run an ad.

This can be really cool.

We are in contact with the "big boys" now.

tell you what i could use though brethren...some help getting this put into all the "general" or "off topic" boards on the distro forums. THAT's where this will work...we don't have alot of time for this to seek its own level.

thanks a bunch.

> a good distro war

I'm sure there would be a lot of passion if "Boycott Novell" were one of the options.
