Subject: Review on Corporate needs and Fedora
I have visited to some*corporate*here in Sri Lanka last few weeks and discuss with them regarding converting their business to Free Software.
The visited business are small and medium type entities*involving*in production or sale or sometimes both.
Small business almost using pirated copies and they do not care about the copyright issues.*I have some discussion and was able to convince that soon the law regulations will impose on such misuses.
Some people have interested in*research*if they are getting required*knowledge*on this.*Few are every much interested and*enthusiastic*about trying them, so I have introduced them Fedora 15 DVDs.
Then I approached to*medium*size business entities, where they are almost using*license*software, they almost network*their PCs so*moving*to another system was far of their reach as they implied.*
One business (in producing iron in my home town area) has*facilitated*me to have a 2 hour meeting with their tech crew to introduce them Fedora.
I have noted the advantages and some tech stuffs with some*examples*with how to use this in their PCs.
They have agreed to try this in their computers(outside the network). In the discussion I have shown them how to install Fedora to a PC by installing it.At the end of the day they have 3 fedora running PCs.
The biggest blocker to approach*medium*size business is their network. Most of the crew and hardware are MS oriented.
I have visited 8 companies (small and medium) all of them are really important and interested.
I took an*appointment*from the manager and just went*their*with my laptop and some fedora DVDs.When they hear about this wonderful free thing every one was inspired and interested.
I open my laptop and show them THIS IS WHAT WE CALLED FEDORA. They were more and more interested.
I like to invite all my FAms and Marketing team members please go and explore the corporate. There are enough*opportunities*out their.I know the number is low but the impact you can make is more.
They liked KDE interface and some of them are really like it. I use F15 and distributed around 50 Fedora 15 DVDs.
My next goal is to*arrange*a F16 release party, a corporate one.
Thanks for your time. *
