The folks at the Red Hat stand were directing visitors to us, to get their
LA funded the printing of ~2400 Fedora discs, which meant that we had far more
of those than we did Ubuntu. If people didn't specify a distro when
requesting a CD, we usually defaulted to Fedora.
We by no means gave away all of our discs, so we have quite a few left over
for the Education Expo.

not reason." - Chilean President Salvador Allende, September 11, 1973
