“We went inside and started handing out flyers. We smiled and
were quiet. We approached the Microsoft booth and slipped a few to
folks who looked eager to fork their resumes over to Microsoft.

“The folks from Intel were happy to see Linux in the crowd, and
the Compaq folks were happy to hear that the Linux community

and cheered us on.

“There was a definite feeling at the end of the day that we had
made an impact.”
