Software Freedom Day 2010 in Thessaloniki



On Friday 17th of September we represented the openSUSE community to a general speech organized by GreekLUG about FOSS at a elementary school at the center of Thessaloniki.
The speech was on Friday because on Saturday schools are closed.

The audience were teachers, parents and of course kids (ages from 9-12 years old). We had to do the same speech to 3 different classes. A representative from GreekLUG talked about what is FOSS and what are the benefits of using it.

Our community was represented by Greek Ambassador Kostas Koudaras (warlordfff). The speech was short and the subjects we mentioned were:

1. Distribution that is the leader of technology.
2. Large community around the world that develop the operating system but also help people to use openSUSE.
3. Developing Greek community.
4. There are many versions that everyone can use depending the needs.
5. There is educational software for the kids.

Teachers and parents were asking about safety that openSUSE can provide them for their kids and how openSUSE can be used in education.
The kids were asking about various games and how those games are free. Kids were also curious about the Geeko that Kostas brought with him. You can see their happy faces :-)

Efstathios Iosifidis provided PromoDVDs, stickers and also a brochure with Greek Help. We gave 100DVDs, about 40 stickers and many brochures.

Here are some pictures:




We couldn't use only our Promo material since it was GreekLUG event for Software Freedom Day. But Kostas promoted openSUSE to everyone.
