On October the 3rd we participated at the xariseto Free Festival.We were placed between Greeklug and the Fedora community Project.
A few words about the event:
The event had everything an Free open fest could have,music,theatrical teams ,places for kids to learn through games, free coffee, free clothes,free games and any other kind of items people stopped use and wanted to give away to others instead of throwing them away as garbage,also after the event what people didn’t take the xarise to team gathered it and gave it to institutions.
Our presence there:
Our Community was represented by Kostas Koudaras (warlordfff) and we had with us dvd's, stickers and flyers with information about our community.We expected more people but the weather was cloudy and not many people left their houses to come at the event.We gave away around 60-70 dvd's but we talked with all 60-70 people and at least 80% showed us real interest on trying openSUSE. Also a big percentage of them were either businessman, either experienced window's user's that were looking for their getaway to Linux operating Systems and needed help for it. Also there were some site admins that asked for our help at the creation of a FOSS section at their Sites.Unfortunately we didn't took many photo's.
Having another distribution near by was really great because we exchanged thoughts about everything and helped each other by sending people over.Also when late in the afternoon started to rain we helped each other to move inside the building.We showed everyone that since we serve the same purpose, co-operation is a good thing.
