The CeBIT which is the biggest IT-related fair in Europe is currently on in Hannover/Germany. The allBSD Project which was founded to focus on marketing related things for all the different BSDs was able to get a small booth. The booth is showing a Xen 3 showcase based on NetBSD and provides informational material to the visitors of the fair. I joined them for one and a half days at the booth and tried to answer all the questions. All the reactions from the visitors show that there is an interest in the BSD based operating systems.
One thing which seems to be very important in these days are small flyers which can be taken by the visitors. We need to create more informational material, anyone who is willing to contribute is a great help.
CeBIT will close its doors on Sunday 8 March 2009, make sure to visit the BSD booth in Hall 6, F50.
