GNOME 3.0 PromoDVD
10,000 GNOME 3.0 PromoDVD were donated to the GNOME Foundation, on behalf of the openSUSE Project. Those DVDs are great materials to have for events, where they can be distributed for free to visitors so they can try GNOME 3 on their computer later on. They are live images, with native x86 and x86-64 support (automatically detected).
The DVDs contain some files that can be used to demo GNOME (various videos, music tracks, pictures and documents).
Note that the image can be downloaded from http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/misc/promo-dvd/
How to get some for your event?
We dispatched the 10,000 DVDs to five locations: US, Europe (Paris), Europe (Berlin), India and China.
The GNOME Foundation has provided budget to send DVDs to other locations so that they can be used at more events. If you want to receive DVDs, please get in touch with VincentUntz, and provide the following information:
- how many DVDs do you need (they come in boxes of 100)
- for which events (including date of the events) they are needed
- deliver address + phone
We'll do our best to send DVDs to you.
