This meeting is free and open to the public.
 The meeting runs from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm.
 Thanks to support of CALC/Canterbury, the meeting is

 between 48th and 49th Streets on
 the East Side of Manhattan.  Ask at the front desk for
 CALC/Canterbury, which is on Concourse Level 1.

 web page at
 and follow the attendance link so that we can
 arrange for the appropriate amount of space.
 Today there is no competent mass market small office
 lan product, neither a source secret product nor a free software
 product. We will argue that the correlation of forces favors free
 software in the coming drive to lower Operating Costs and raise
 Return on Investment.

 man apt-get
 I will also install from scratch a Debian system in
 two different ways, one of which requires 
 exactly three keystrokes.  The author of the three stroke
 install utility will heckle throughout.
