Hello and welcome. Microsoft has begun to train Best Buy associates on the virtues of Windows 7 over GNU/Linux for netbooks.

Since Software Freedom Day is on September 19th, 2009(2 weeks away), Best Buy seems like a great place to hand out CDs and flyers encouraging people to try GNU/Linux on their laptops and desktops before they buy. In the coming days, we'll be putting up resources to help you at your local Best Buy to make this project a huge success!

The goal: To raise awareness about free software and to give shoppers the opportunity to try a 100% free operating system with a minimum of inconvenience.

So far interest has been shown from people in the SF Bay Area, Washington, D.C., and Raleigh, NC.
