You can get a free CD with Ubuntu on it. In my book that counts as spending a few pennies in advertising. (But I didn't need the free CD to get me hooked on this distribution.)

I agree that giving out free CD's can be counted as advertising, but I expect that it is more effective than expensive ads.

I also didn't need the free CD to get hooked...

Ubuntu advertising

But you have to ask for the free CD? Then it isn't advertising. Advertising is pushing information to people; responding to inquiries can be part of marketing, but isn't advertising.
