I don't know a darn thing about Helios Solutions, but I know they are doing some very smart Linux marketing and I think their business model is one that could make excellent sense for other consultants.
Here's what they are doing in parts of California and Austin, Texas: for $99.00 they'll come to your house and install Linux. This is from the page that describes the service:
Now THAT is a good idea. For $50.00, you can ship a system to them and they'll install a Linux distro of yoir choice and a week of support once you get it back. Want more support? They are ready to do that, too.
This is smart marketing.
Got something to add? Send me email.
