Handing out LM DVDs

Postby betatest3 » Wed Dec 24, 2014 8:27 am

How about some of us get those 15Packs of DVD-R's, and stand outside of stores selling Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon DVD's for $3.00 each.

Then we could give people copies of Linux Mint, they like it, then they tell their friends and family and they install it,
and they tell their friends and family, and it spreads exponentially.

Like a feast with food and at a dinner table?
Good idea, however I dont think many people would be confortable letting several strangers into their houses and feeding them so that they can help their favorite Linux Distro.


Another good idea would be to go door to door and hand out flyers, and DVD's then they can read the flyer to find out about LM.
Or we could find someone who works at Microsoft and have him/her go into their computers and replace all WIndows update files with Linux Kernel, then next time WIndows users install updates, it will install Linux

I will be giving about 10 live disc's of LM 18.1 Cinnamon 64 per week to a local street peddler that sells books (donated or scrounged) for $5 each or 2 for $6. he has been at it for a little over a year. Homeless buy that is trying to do better than begging on the street corner. I gave him 5 the first time and he did not know what they were. I then gave him a small laptop that he was able to plug into an outside plug at a local shop ad connect to the WIFI.
The DVD's are moving. He is learning how to use a computer and show others how to use Linux.
