Yes, now I would like to add my proposal. At this very movement, I will
concentrate on media distribution programs only. I don’t want to talk about
a particular free media program, but want to take Linux as a whole.
So, Now what I wanted to say on my lines "Can we do something to spread
Linux like virus?" is as under:
The issue is that whenever anyone receives a OS, may be through free media
program or if anyone downloaded the ISO's. That person (though interested)
is not able to propagate that to other, except his know. Now the reason is
that if I have a Linux OS, I have no centralized place to post this
information for all the Linux Destro I have, so that anyone near to my
location can get that from me, nor there is any common platform available
(as per my knowledge), where I can check for, if there is anyone near me,
who already had my interested destro, from whom I can get that. So, I think
there should be a centralized place.
In addition to above, I think if you ask me for the Free Linux media and get
a Linux OS from me, I have the right to ask you to propagate this and join
my free media program in return.
I agree that my thoughts may require modifications/alterations, but I think
it makes sense.
One more think, I think still it is much easier to get a pirated windows
software locally than to get a Linux software.

I agree with your point. But I think there are many good brains who can
contribute to make linux trouble free, but fails to contribute, just because
they were not able get a startup kit, the OS. I suggest distribution of all
popular Linux Destros, because this is my personal experience that if one
destro fails to start the gui (which every newbies want), the other destro
succeeds. I have also observed that very few are comfortable with CLI, most
newbies look for gui. Also, for linux to be accepted as desktop OS GUI is
I think to make everyone a good shooter, you first needs sufficient number

The only thing I can say is that if you want to know about Linux, you need
to come out of your sem pattern.
When god solves your problem, you have faith in his abilities....
But when he doesn't solve your problems, remember he has faith in your
Friends, I can google search, but until I have the OS to install, I will not
have any problem, what to say about the solution. This is the basic think I
was trying to communicate to the community. So for media distribution, I was
looking for good proposals, But I think I failed.
I will soon update my proposal in new post.

AD, I am already trying to help others through my site
www.opensourcenuts.com. The purpose of my site is to provide easy basic
steps to push the need to first gear.
Let me know if I can participate in your proposal.
