    Kansas Ubuntu Day

    I think we should have some sort of Kansas Ubuntu Day. Perhaps we could get a table setup some where with a laptop running Gutsy and hand out OS CDs. What does everyone else think of this? Any specific ideas on what we specifically could do?

    Just let me know what I can do to help. I'm in the Wichita area and I think this is a fantastic idea. Sorry I'm so late but I just joined the forums last night. If you're still interested in doing this just let me know how I can help.

    Re: Kansas Ubuntu Day

    I think this is a Great Idea.
    I know this post was last year.
    Ubuntu has came along way from last year
    I feel that is ready for general public to use.
    and it would be great to get out there and show it off.

    This should be a team thing.
    we should set a date.. get freinds and family involved. Set up a table and a couple of Laptops, Desktops , Nettops (easy and cheap to build your own), or what ever at a busy spot in your home town. (mine would be Wal-Mart). and just do some demos with people.

    oh and the nettop can be built for under $250 - minus the monitor.
    we build these as small office based backup / file servers using Ubuntu 8.04 server. and I have one at work I have 9.04 desktop on that I'm going to push to the heads as a new system for retail. sub $450 system with monitor. little old grandmas will love it to surf the web and get email on.

    Kansas Ubuntu day 2009

    October is the release of Karmic Koala. October is right after school starts and it is hard to organize something at the colleges in that short of time for a 'release party'.
    I agree that things have come a long way since last year.
    JoshuaRL and Kah00na, I see you have met on here. Good deal. I am in Kansas City now and I can try to contact the free software clubs around here and also recontact Oklahoma and Missouri's locos. We are gonna give JoshuaRL a try at organizing things around here and I'm sure he will do a great job. We need to get him the passwords reset.
    I have a list of people here somewhere and I will whip up an email to get some attention back to the LoCo. We might be able to bring this thing together here spring of 09. With a few projects and events we can be made 'official'.

    I am in Topeka and would be more than willing to help, attend, or whatever is needed.

    I'm in wichita but with some advanced scheduling, I can make it anywhere in kansas for the ubuntu day. I also have a test machine I can bring to set-up for public use.
