Recife, Brazil debuts with “Recife Linux Installfest”

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.
