INSTALLFEST - SFD celebration Saturday September 25th
The Philadelphia Area Computer Society (PACS) has once again decided to feature FOSS as it's September Meeting. PACS boasts over 150 paying members, and an average meeting attendance of 100 enthusiasts.
The September meeting is usually directly on Software Freedom Day. This year, because of a holiday, it has been moved to September 25th. That's ok, we can still celebrate SFD(elayed)!!
The PACS Linux SIG will be doing the Main Presentation at this meeting. That meeting will focus on trying UBUNTU with Wubi. (PACS membership is primarily Windows based.)
The whole day, starting at 8:30 will be themed on FOSS.
The whole day will also be an INSTALLFEST EXTRAVAGANZA.
The LoCo has always helped with these SFD events, and we hope to continue to get support again. We want to create an image server/pusher to make installs super fast. We want to offer many different images, to be prepared for many different types of hardware. Also want to serve up USB LIVE PERSISTENT images to but on sticks for people, as well as virtual images for people to use.
All of this will be outlined on a wiki page. We need your support, physically and intellectually as we prepare for this event.
PACS also has a MAC contingent, so we really need help with using UBUNTU on a MAC.
Just wanted to get the notice out, and start getting input.
