260 South Silo

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 web at:
We’re always looking for volunteers for our workshops. If you’d like to help, or come watch and learn as others are helped, please feel free to drop by. Our “vox-if” mailing list is where we discuss plans and needs for these events, so we encourage you to sign up:
