The ‘Free’ Linux
We all know Linux is free. I experienced ubuntu (http://www.ubuntu.com) is following it more religiously which really made me to appreciate, put a note in my blog and point at them straight. You can give your valid mailing address and specify the flavor of Linux you want to try; the CD or DVD ROMs will fly all the way to your door step with zero charge!!! One month back I opted for 3 different flavors of ubuntu Linux and requested in the site https://shipit.ubuntu.com. Ubuntu sent those to me without charging a single penny. Rather spending millions-billions on ad campaigns, this is a nice-smart thought which really creates product awareness and reaches people more effectively. The initiative automatically encourages hoi-polloi to spread this news like a black wine.
