Install Fest for Software Freedom Day

By Loquaciousness - 22 September 2008 7

Further to my earlier post about Software Freedom Day, I would  just like to remind you all that the Install Fest is happening this Saturday at the ANU (CSIT building – Room N101). Bring your computer and any peripherals you want set up. We’ll provide the software and get you up and running. If you just want to have a chat about Free and Open Source software, and didn’t get along to the computer fair on the weekend, feel free to just come and ask questions too.

Johnboy – feel free to bring along the dual quad core beastie … I’m sure we’d all love to have a play 😉 [ED – that’s a DUAL quad core beastie! But we seem to be moving along OK with it]

We also have a few Open Disc CDs still available. You can download the contents of the disc here, or you can email the Canberra Linux Users Group at linux@lists.samba.org and we’ll get one to you direct.

Thanks to all those who showed up on Saturday – the day was resounding success. Hopefully it will be even bigger and better next year!

What’s Your opinion?

really enjoyed the day, and the CD – works fine on a mac running parallels and win xp.

win xp set about installing several of the utilities, and there haven’t been any probs since. there was a g4 mac at one of the other stalls for $145.00 – was very tempted to buy it….
