01/02/2007: Solutions Linux 2007 Summit

Once again Mandriva took part in the Linux Solutions summit, and once again we have done things well !

The feeling:

The final assessment is very good. Despite some technical difficulties at the beginning (easily solved), we knew
no trouble during those three days and it was our pleasure to welcome Mandriva and Linux users on our booth.

We had very good feedbacks from users and people who did not necessarily know Mandriva before.

Visitors appreciated the availability of the staff and the possibility to have product demonstrations on demand, especially for the Mandriva Flash : many people were constantly pressing around the demonstration computer.

Many people who knew Mandriva but had stopped updating after the 10 or 10.1 version showed interest in the 2007 version. That's the 3-D effect ! Many visitors admitted coming back to Mandriva just because of this.
Some had also heard about Metisse and are now eager to try the Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring version.

The presentations also had great success, especially those made by Fred who managed to make his Metisse presentations captivating.

Visitors now know it all about Pulse, Metisse and the Mandriva Linux 2007 range, among others.

Besides the users, this summit was also for us a good opportunity to meet representatives from various associations. We talked about upcoming projects and partnership opportunities, so stay on the look-out for upcoming events in
which Mandriva will take an active part.

The numbers :

The Mandriva booth was very popular : more than 1500 people were scanned.
About 2000 people stopped and chatted with us (the hostess could not scan everybody)

If you add all those who only passed briefly in order to grab a couple of goodies and have a look at the presentations, it amounts to quite a nice number of people.

About 2500 Mandriva One were handed out. That's as many potential users converted!

The team is unanimous : participating to this summit and meeting people was a great pleasure.
We'd do it again in a blink !
