I can burn some CDs. I'll get started with 25 copies of Knoppix 5.1.1 unless people object then check back.

Hold up on that, I think I still have a stack from September. Just need a few minutes to look around for where I put them.


We need to think this out, last time we ended up with a huge stack of CDs we didn't give out.

Here's my current inventory of "Fancy" labeled discs from last time that I think we can still use.(I might have more and I'll keep looking, I know others took some home last time too)

4x Knoppix 5.0.1
2x Helix 1.7
5x The OpenCD TheOpenCDv3.1 5.10 "Breezy Badger" -
1x FreeSMUG (Open Source for Mac OS)

Ok I think we should replace the OpenCD copies with the new version, but I don't see why we can't use the others.

Now as for how many, based on how many we gave away at Free Software Day, not too many. Personally as much as I like and use Knoppix, I think the OpenCD may be more beneficial for a live disc since they get OpenSource software out of it even if they don't switch. Then we can go with a standard U/K/E/Xubuntu for a Live/Installable for those who might actually install.
Throw in a couple of Helix discs, maybe some of those PC Linux from last time.

My Recommendations - 50 disc total
15 OpenCD
10 Knoppix
5 Helix
5 FreeSmug
10 Ubuntu Flavor
5 PC Linux

Now maybe someone could chip in from past WEFs with how popular the handouts are, but keep in mind the "zero waste" principles of the event.

What do people think?
