kahrytanhas anyone considered doing a campaign to get HP to do same thing Dell has done for Ubuntu? Bring about HP computer designed to run Ubuntu. 07:40
BHSPitLappythey'll decide if they want to listen to customers, we can't make that decision for them08:08
kahrytanBut we can encourage them.08:24
kahrytanWe can do that by letting them know there is thousands of people waiting to buy HP w/ Ubuntu on it.  That spells profit for them and they do want profit.08:25
kahrytanIt's easy to do... try simple letters and stick one of those free stickers Canonical puts in envelops with shipit cds on the envelop sent to HP hq08:26
Hobbseekahrytan: so, tell hp?08:28
kahrytanAnother step would to print cardbord CDs using Ubuntu CD image and send it to HP hq. And Ubuntu sticker on envelop.08:28
kahrytancarboard ..cuz you want waste canonical's money doing it.08:28
kahrytanYou know .. how the studios did when they brought that tv show i never watch anyways but millions of others did.08:29
* Hobbsee wonders why kahrytan doesn't do some of his ideas himself, from where he is08:30
kahrytanBecause it seems .. uh.. pointless if ONE person does it08:30
* Hobbsee thought you were involved in a loco?08:31
kahrytanWhy would 1 person matter to a companies bottomline. It won't.08:31
kahrytanI quit .. long time ago. Now defunct. 08:31
kahrytanby long time ago, I mean 90 days ago. by defunct, I mean nothing has happened since then.08:33
