Hi Hugo i have seen many people from brasil using arch and the brasilian irc and forums are full all the time. I´m from Venezuela and i participate in the flisol event, spreading the arch way. We are only two and don't have a "presentation" but a lot of people seems to be interested in the proyect and we gave a lot of cd's. Right now we're builing the Venezuelan Arch Community.

Last week we had a great Free Software event here in Brasi: The International Forum of Free Software (with nearly 8000 people).
I had the pleasure of presenting (with Douglas Soares and Kessia Pinheiro) the Arch in a lecture. The lecture was very nice and the room was completely full. We managed to show very well the distribution and gain more new users for the Arch.
We also had a stand to show the distro, take questions and install Arch for the users. The brazilian community is getting bigger and bigger everyday. =)
Yesterday i did the same thing in another event: FLISOL (Festival of Latin American Free Software Installation). The result was awesome too.

What i want to know is: Someone has made any presentation of Arch in events? How has been the receptivity of people? What you guys think about this?
