"If you're seeing this, you can help the spread the word on Linux to those still trapped in a Microsoft only world! The event is in Tampa on September 27th and 28th. This is an open invitation to ALL who are interested to come and help."

"The Suncoast Linux Users Group (SLUG) has been invited to give a presentation at the upcomming Computers and Techology Showcase on Sept. 27th and 28th in the Tampa Bay Convention Center in Tampa, Fl. WE ARE EXTENDING THE INVITATION TO ALL FLORIDA BASED LUGs TO ATTEND THIS SHOW. Our mission is to, by show of numbers, preset to the attending members of the business community that Linux offers a viable (and often superior) alternative for their business computing needs, offering complete, secure, reliable, inexpensive, and wide ranging business solutions both in the work place and in the home."

"We have been provided, free of charge, a 10x10 booth on the main show floor and an auditorium (adjecent to the Microsoft auditoriums) in which to give presentations. We have contacted various Linux vendors and manufacturers (Corel, Caldera, Red Hat, SuSE, Mandrakesoft, Kondra, Slackware, Stormix, TurboLinux, Yellow Dog, and Linux Mall), however, any involved in Open Source (prefferably Linux or BSD) developement and usage are also invited (this includes but is not limited to Net, Open, and FreeBSD as well as any Linux distro user or maker). We already have a confirmed speaker coming in from TurboLinux, Mr. William Peterson (bio at the bottom of the letter) and have invited members of other distributions to come and speak as well. Speakers that have been invited (but are not deffinite) include Jon Bolzern from Linux Mall and Jon "Maddog" Hall from Linux International. Furthermore, we have contacted various news sources in the community about the event, including Linux Magazine, Linux Journal, Linux Today, Open, Maximum Linux and local news sources. Finally, many prizes and freebies are to be given (the response for many companies has been to send free stuff to pass out to those interested at the show)."
