Well, IMHO auto-apt is very cool to show of for newbees on a booth.

Imagine when I was on Cebit some random people asked me: Could you
please show me a Linux Office suite?


   ~> sudo auto-apt update    # was done before
   ~> auto-apt -x -y run
   $ openoffice


   wait until OpenOffice was downloaded and installed
   OpenOffice found German locale but no locale files instelled
      -> wait until German support for OpenOffice was downloaded and installed
   -->  finally OpenOffice was fired up

This was *really* impressive for people who were used to find some CDs
they had to put in their box, handle "Please remove all running programs"
requests and reboot stuff.

IMHO such kind of reference card could contain something we can be proud of ...

Kind regards
