Linux InstallFest IV
Date and Time
Saturday, September 19, 1998 from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
Howard Johnson Motel
A periodic get-together where volunteers from our group help people with Linux installation and other hands-on issues.
We invite you to become a member of the Boston area Linux community this month. Meet the Linux community and discover the operating system of the future.
Linux is a UNIX-like operating system built around POSIX standards. From its inception less than eight years ago, it was developed over the Internet by a group of people who (for the most part) have never seen each other, and now runs on an (estimated) 1,500,000 computer systems. The operating system (and the source code for it) is free to anyone who wants it.
It has been ported to at least the following platforms: Intel, SPARC, Alpha, MIPS, PPC, and M68K. This is probably the largest development project ever accomplished using the Internet.
Cost is $25 per person (limit 1 system per person).
