Also installfests happening with GW's chapter of ACM and the DC Ubuntu LoCo
each time a new Ubuntu release happens. GW's chapter of OSI set out
computers for a week in the entrance to the Engineering building running
OpenSuSE, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, Fedora, and Slackware to demo them to the
public. I liked that one because the computers were sitting there with a
sign saying you can use them and try them out, so anyone walking by could be
exposed to them with someone there to answer questions.
