Thanks to Rildo Pragana for this story.

This is the first time we're doing such an event in the northeast region of Brazil. We expect between 200 and 1000 computers to be converted to Linux at this time -- a breakthrough for a place where M$ was previously the only player. It will be held in a large store (about 3500 sq. meters), "Computer One", that sells hardware, packaged software and supplies, next Saturday, February 27, from 10:00 to 18:00 local time.
