Randall Ross: Tip #3 for Ubuntu Evangelists (and Advocates)

Print Friendly

In our last episodes, Tip #1, Tip #2, I encouraged you to use Ubuntu yourself, every day. I also encouraged you to drop the computer history lessons.

Now, it’s time for the next tip:

Tip #3: Pronounce “Ubuntu” correctly.

It’s pronounced “Oo-boon-too”. This might sound like something trivial or pedantic, but please recognize that when you mispronounce a word, your credibility may be immediately called into question. A quick Google search for the correct pronunciation and a few minutes of practice is all it takes.

Over the coming days I’ll be sharing more of my tips for Ubuntu advocates. Things I’ve learned the hard way by trying things myself, failing, re-thinking, and then trying again. Please stay tuned for Tip #4 tomorrow.

Are you an Advocate? Please check out the brand new Advocacy Kit:

An aside: Astute readers might look for Tip #1 dated Dec. 20th on Planet Ubuntu and won’t find it. Don’t fret. I’ve noticed its mysterious disappearance too, and I’m about as impressed as you are about our cowardly censor.
