Street Tested – Ubuntu Slogan
November 27th, 2011 | D.I.Y., Open Source, ubuntu, Vancouver
This is our 2nd year hitting up the Vancouver’s Farmer’s Market. We had some wonderful responses, questions, and discussions with those at the market.
In addition to asking, what they thought the new Ubuntu slogan should be we also jotted down a list of the things people wish their computer would stop doing. The number one thing (based on the use of proprietary software) was that there were just too many pop ups, too frequently. Followed closely by the cost of software packages is expensive. When we told them an entire office suite is included with Ubuntu most really couldn’t believe it. They just kept asking really? Not a trail version or a partial version? How can you do that? (Give me that for free?)
Even though we are giving away free software and membership to the community can see that people are very weary. Asking questions to try and find out the ‘catch’.
Now on to the meat of the post. What you have all been dying to know. Which slogan came out ahead?
