Special Topic this Month:
What version of Linux should I install?
Linux is a completely free, 'open source' operating system that can run
on a wide variety of computer hardware. It can act as a web-, file-,
print- or game-server, run in a 'cluster' of computers to do 3D rendering
or other intense math, or sit under your TV and record your favorite shows
for later viewing. Many people use it as an inexpensive, stable,
virus- and spyware-free alternative to commercial software, such as
Microsoft Windows. It can be installed over, or alongside, Windows or
Mac OS X.
Members of the community are invited to bring their computers and laptops
to this informal workshop, and volunteers from LUGOD will help you install
and configure Linux... for FREE!
If you wish to bring in your PC, you must RSVP beforehand to reserve a
space. The RSVP form, and lots of useful information about Linux and
Installfests, and how to prepare for the event, are accessible on the
