The Linux Users' Group of Davis will be holding a free "Linux Installfest"
workshop in Davis, California:

  Saturday, January 26
  10:00am - 5:00pm

  Plant and Environmental Science Building
  Room 2005
  UC Davis
  Davis, California


  Enter at Middle Door close to the Tennis Court.

  On the weekend you can park anywhere on campus for free, so you can
  park right here by the building. (Unless its roped off for a special
  event, unlikely).

  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.

  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:

"There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to
make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other
way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies."
