[Ambassadors] Sharing Experiences with you !

Good Morning  Ambassadors,

We are glad to share with you all the experiences we had during the French Install Parties that hapened this month.

- Lille (2006 oct 21st):

    - We were 4 Ambassadors in Lille.
    - Lots of people liked the 3d effect, this is a major point to promote in Fedora.
    - During the day, we had a lot of discussion with the Fedora Users and we had positive feedbacks about Fedora product and communauty.
    - One installation, but lot of questions arround Fedora.
    - On the MrTom's Blog, some pictures are available

- Paris (2006 oct 28th):

    - We were 10 Ambassadors in Paris.
    - It was the 1st real adventure for some Fedora Ambassadors.
    - We prepared some presentions :
          - Fedora Project : MrTom
          - 3D Desktop Effect : [splinux]
          - Fedora Support : trashy
          - Open Source vs Non Open Source softwares : Armelk

    - We made some installations of Fedora Core 6 on Desktops and Notebook products.
    - We burned Burn some DVD and copied the ISO files into the end user hard drive.
    - Firt feedbacks from the partner is very positive, we are welcome for next version of Fedora (7).

The keys elements for the presentation and Fedora promotion are :
     - 3D Desktop Effects (All Fedora users and all people like it).
     - Fedora Project and Fedora Community, lot of people need a clear picture about Fedora and RedHat, the Ambassadors clarify this point.
     - The new printer installation software (More user friendly and easier for the configuration).
     - Ambassadors present during the day and motivate the user to test and use Fedora.

Next step for the Fedora French Team :
     - Prepare the major Open Source Show in Paris.
     - 30 January to 01 February LINUX SOLUTION - CNIT - PARIS - La Defense (http://www.solutionslinux.fr/fr/index.php - the English page is not available at the moment).
     - In the same place we have the major Open Source actors.
     - We are preparing this event in collaboration with Parinux (Active Linux User Group).
     - I'm pretty sure the Fedora US and Worldwide Team support us on this project.

The French Ambassadors
