    I had the impression the debian booth at the linux@work expo in Amsterdam
    was the most popular one. I believe this was (at least partly) caused
    by the fact the Debian booth looked, uhm, different. The same thing
    happened at linux2000 in amsterdam. Pictures can be found on





    If I were to appear in a suit to be on a debian booth, I would be
    not as happy to help.
