Intrepid Ibex on Berliner Fenster

Berlin's underground waggons are equipped with LCD screens showing news headlines, event tips and local advertisements. This morning those screens catched my attention by suddenly showing a well known wallpaper, making me smile: "Intrepid Ibex - Ubuntu 8.10 - Available now for free -" (in German of course).

Well, done guys.

Looking forward to see other Linux related ads on Berliner Fenster.

I saw it yesterday, too. I was really surprised. They announced the intrepid release party at the c-base

Saw a regular advertisement in a Berlin underground month's ago. Very cool that people are doing this, compliments to the hidden sponsors behind it!

Hi! Wie war denn der genaue deutsche Text?

@culture: Didn't do anything with Bulldozer recently. Maybe I should move it GNOME SVN, so that interested people can work on it?

@Den anderen Mathias: Uh, keine Ahnung. Aber das "free" war ein "kostenlos", falls das die Information ist, die Dich interessiert. Macht Sinn meiner Meinung nach, denn Freiheit ist ein zu abstrakter Begriff für Werbung: Lasst uns zuerst mit praktischen Aspekten das Interesse wecken. Die mit Linux verbundene Freiheit entdecken die Leute ganz von alleine, wenn Sie's erstmal benutzen.
