Your opinion on conference examples and sample data?

I’m starting to prepare examples for my GBN 2009 presentations. I generally use the e-Fashion universe for my examples, as it is readily available from SAP BusinessObjects and can be installed as part of the installation process of BusinessObjects Enterprise and BusinessObjects Edge BI. Conventional wisdom is that conference attendees want to download and interact with samples as part of mastering the material. But conventional wisdom can be wrong…

I’d appreciate your insights so I’ve set up a poll on the right sidebar of my blog. Could you take a moment to answer the following question: “How important are Business Objects conference samples?”

1) Use e-Fashion because it’s easy
2) Use something more interesting, even if I have to download and configure.
3) Doesn’t matter because I never download samples.

If you fall into the “interesting” category and have some ideas (preferably with links), feel free to post a comment to this article.
