"The Linux community in Southern Australia welcomes a few hundred more users into the fold at the Adelaide Install Fest 2000."
"Though I have used Linux for the last five years or so and Unix for a number of years before that, I had never been to an install fest. So it was with some interest that I prepared to attend Install Fest 2000 in Adelaide, South Australia. What would it be like? Would it really help people and attract users to Linux?"
"It all started in May when Richard Russell, a longtime member of LinuxSA, the Adelaide-based LUG, sent out an email (see Resources for a link) to the group's mailing list, suggesting an install fest in August or September. He went on to make the mistake of saying that he would be "happy to coordinate things."
