It was a good day and the thing that made me happy more than any thing is that I met a lot of people who have installed Ubuntu as the main operating system on their machines and alot of them asked me for the alternative programs for Windows on Linux, a lot of those people were new to open source and they wondered how free programs competes and wins!
