Hi,

The price to advertise on Distrowatch is proportionally equivalent to the price paid by Google for Linux Mint to show ads. Mint is still unknown to a lot of people and it wouldn't hurt us to spread the word a bit more. For the project this would mean more money of course but also a larger community so more feedback, more testing, more sub-projects.

I'm thinking of spending $160 on advertising just to see if this has any positive consequence for the project. Anybody wants to give his best shot at an animated 468x60 banner??

I'm also looking for ideas on catchphrases, concepts.. etc.

My opinion is to pay for advertise after the release of Bianca and before of Ubuntu's release. It's important to have the latest packages because people will compare this distro with other distros using Distrowatch.
Also some reviews will be very helpful (on Linuxtoday, Osnews, Distrowatch,..., and made proposals to some important magazines like: PCWorld, PCMagazine, LinuxMagazine, CHIP, ... to make their reviews, or to test the distro). The community also can help.

Zolly: You're right. Let's wait for Bianca's final release.

Send Matthew Newton at PcWorld a copy to evaluate. He loves and uses Ubuntu plus he gave a glowing review of Automatix last year. There is no better advertisement than good press.
