I think its quite nice idea, we'll try to do it something like this
within our CLUG (Cracow LUG), but maybe a bit differently,
I mean -- free lecture about PostgreSQL 8 done ASAP after
the release.

The problem with Firefox is that it is a browser, a great browser
nonetheless, but still a browser.  Most people will use it just
to browse pages, so there is not much that general public
would like to learn...  PostgreSQL then... there is a lot of
to learn, a lot of.  So, I think what you want most when
advocating PgSQL is not "here, have a CD and try i your
self" but rather "see, it can do this, and do this, and do this,
so you didn't know SQL can do this? Someone did you an
ill favour. Now, take the CD and try it yourself". :-)
