It was helpful definitely since the number of linux users have grown
considerably during the past year. Apart from that we have people who are
waiting more events this year. It has helped Fedora to become the most used
distro is my college :-), which was openSUSE earlier.

So now I want to get some contributors from the college which will not be
possible if someone drives it.
