No, it can certainly be better, and hopefully we can create glossy posters
and make them so cool that we can sell them. But with less than 10 days to
go I don't think we can be very picky.

In fact, I would prefer 2 kind of posters. One being an attention grabber
that is cool and something that people want to have at home. And the other
one being an informative poster that is useful so people that walk by get
the message without needing to address someone (which sometimes people do
not do by themselves).

Both can help people to come and talk to us, but the second poster gives
away the message even if they don't.

However, FOSDEM is not the typical tradeshow so I am not that concerned.
