Recommendations from family and friends are the number one reason people buy products, support causes or try out services. I don’t know if it’s because they trust their friends’ opinions or because they can see that their friends really use, but whatever it is, people are more likely to use something if their friends speak positively about it.
So the best thing you can do to support your favorite cause, whether it’s open source software in general, GNOME or your favorite local bookstore, is to use it and talk about it.
Thanks to Andreas Nilsson, Paul Cutler, Jaap Haitsma, Claus Schwarm and others who made this happen!
