Linux Promotion in Mall Kiosks

Filed under
Linux

I have been attending Linux install festivals for years. Always fun, often educational and (in some cases) completely missing the mark of their potential for the people they interact with.

While I believe the organizers of such fests have their hearts in the right place, more often than not I am finding these events cater to those who are merely looking for help getting something to work with the OS.

I see this as limiting. Not because there’s anything wrong with it, rather because there is so much more these same knowledgeable individuals could be doing with the general public.

Why not begin exploring other more public, socially accepted forums for promoting the Linux alternative? Mall kiosks for example. Considering how successful these mobile ventures can be, wouldn’t this be an ideal platform to promote a freely available OS such as Linux to anyone who will listen?
