— Over the past 3 years the Ubuntu GNU Linux Desktop has become one of
the most popular and broadly used Open Computing Environments in the
world. To promote the recent release of Ubuntu “Gutsy Gibbon” (vers. 7.10),
ALE has teamed up with Ubuntu Georgia for the Ubuntu Install Fest and
Forum to raise public awareness of Open Source Software Freedom.
— Copies of the Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon Live Install CD will be available
to anyone who visits the Install Fest & Forum and in advance of the event
at several locations. Live CD’s can also be ordered, requested or downloaded
and burned at Ubuntu.com/getUbuntu
— Anyone can safely boot their AMD/Intel PC or Mac with an Ubuntu Live Install
CD to freely explore the free Linux Desktop environment and the dozens of free
programs that are included.
— Demonstrations of the free Ubuntu Desktop and major Open Source software
packages will be offered at the Install Fest and Forum. Several demo systems
will will be provided for learning and exploration.
— When people who try the Live CD like what they find , a full installation to the
system hard drive is a simple click on a desktop icon.
— Linux & Ubuntu installation experts will be hand to assist with any questions
or quirks. Monitors, mice, keyboards and cables will be available so that all
you need bring is your computer. Existing Operating System and files can easily
be retained, so you don’t have to burn any bridges to get a taste of GNU Linux
Freedom! A list of recommended preparations prior to installation can be found HERE.
