providing openSUSE CD's at the CSUN conference, I was a bit
uncomfortable with the fact that we were the only ones with media. I
felt it gave visitors the impression that openSUSE was the preferred
distro of GNOME Foundation, and would have been more comfortable with
providing a selection to our visitors.
With the CSUN Conference, we've already resolved not to let that happen
again and make sure that next year's conference will have multiple
selections. I think its best that we ensure that practice for all GNOME
Foundation booth events.
As for counts, just to give an idea. We had 300 CDs, (Live, 32-bits,
and 64-bits) and were left with about 30 afterward.
We also gave out 50 shirts.
I think asking the major distros to contribute media and swag up front
would motivate many of them to do so, as it reduces their own costs of
coordinating shipments on a per-event basis and gives them additional
Of course, all this means more work for you divvying up the goodies, and
maybe that's not a good idea either.
