LinuxWorld: Installing Australia – Attendance exceeded expectations

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.”
