Maybe, maybe not. What I've seen at Linux expos is that people don't
care about free things - a lot of free CDs etc. given away at shows go
straight in the bin. If people have to pay something for them (even
something really cheap), then they're more likely to take an interest.

  Debian does NOT ship free CDs. Please do NOT contact the mailing
  lists asking us to send them to you.
