Experienced Linux administrators will be present to answer questions and to provide the public with free Installation of Linux, a free operating system acknowledged by many experts to be more powerful, stable and secure than MicroSoft Windows. The free installation will include free web browsers, free office suites, and other software applications that computer users expect. Those who wish to experiment with Linux while keeping their current operating systems can access either operating system simply by restarting their computers."
Attendees wishing to have Linux installed on their Computers need only bring their box, monitor, keyboard and mouse. Those who connect to the internet using a dial-up modem should bring the modem also.
