This brings up and interesting point and I'm not trying to start any distro
religious wars but might it not be a bad idea to have our own "official
distro advocates/evangelists" Maybe someone for each distro (well most of
the more prominent ones anyway) in an identifying t-shirt or the like that
can be available to "inform" the newbies as far as any specific distro
Say if someone wanted to know what the configuration of Debian was like
compared to Slackware he/she might go to talk to both the Slackware "person"
and the Debian "person" and compare what each had to say..
I realise The idea isn't perfect and could probably be worked on or tuned up
but it was just a thought..
