This is more a question on how to make SolydXK known to the public, and I really could need your help here.
So, let's think out-of-the-box, get out of your comfort zone, and see opportunities and no problems (add your business phrases here)!
To get started I'll quote our own welcome message to remind us of our target public:
Now, all Linux distributions are fishing in the same tank: everybody already interested in Linux move between distributions over time. The number of users are not changing that much, and most potential users are to be found outside of that tank.SolydXK is an open source alternative for small businesses, non-profit organizations and home users.
You have the average Windows user, who might wish to try something else, but doesn't know what are the alternatives. Then there are (small) business owners who might benefit from switching to a more stable and secure OS, but doesn't know what are the risks, how much it's going to cost, and who's going to maintain it all. And then you have the non-profit organizations who find themselves in a difficult situation where there is little budget, little IT know-how, and are pressured by their governments to cut on IT expenses.
I'd like to concentrate mainly on the first two groups (for now):
- The Windows user who'd like to try something else, but doesn't know where to begin.
- The (small) business owner, who wants to concentrate on his core-business instead of maintaining the little of IT he has.
It boils down to some simple questions:
- How do we reach these groups (means)?
- How do we change their opinion about Linux, and SolydXK in particular (change image and opinion about Linux)?
- How do we let these groups realize there is a viable alternative?
What is your opinion about all this?
Which means should we use, and how to use them?
Even if you think your ideas are unrealistic, please post them here: it could trigger others which can lead to something that we can realize.
