Yeah, sorry. I did not see the call for promotional ideas until after I answered your thread. I explained my response here:viewtopic.php?f=163&t=26899
You might want to start by moving this thread to this forum:
I was a bit negative in that thread but it is not towards the idea of advertising, rather towards the distrowatch preoccupation many seem to hold. "OMG, we are number 1! Woo hoo..."
I just have a thing against all the distrowatch fanboys, there is so much made of the rankings and most people do not realize that they just represent how many hits that distro gets, it has nothing to do with installation or usage.
However you have a good idea, a banner ad surely couldnt hurt.
I will bug off and let all the artsy fartsy types get down to work. I wish you all well, I think getting the message that there is an easy alternative to MS out to the general public is a good thing.
