Big Screen LinuxBig Screen LinuxOn November 30 and December 1, several groups are working together to help introduce students and the Bozeman community to Linux. Linux is an open-source, community-developed operating system which is an excellent alternative to Windows. With the recent release of Windows Vista, there is significant interest in alternatives, especially Linux.

On November 30 we'll be demonstrating a flexible user environment in Linux called Compiz-Fusion, along with other graphics tools. We're going to be in the new EPS atrium on the MSU campus from 10AM-3PM, showing off Linux on the new plasma monitors.

On December 1, we'll be having several informational presentations in the morning starting at 10AM, showing how Linux can meet the needs of everyday users, such as writing term papers, normal web browsing, and more. That afternoon, we're inviting anyone to bring in their laptop or desktop computers, where a team will help them get started with Linux on their own computer. We're meeting on campus in EPS 108 for the morning, then moving to a computer lab on the second floor in the afternoon.

Installfest

It was fun, the turnout for the demonstrations was pretty good, and got a couple people set up and switched over to linux! I'm moving to Helena in January, so I'll have see what the LUG is about there.

PS. I know Scott, and Jeff took a bunch of pictures, and I'd get my hands on a couple if their hosted somewhere? Or email?

Thanks

Sheldon Ross
