It seems ironic that these installfests take place on the very campus
where the GNU project and the FSF came to be, yet their "home team"
distro should not be on the list.  I have no great love for debian
personally, but many people do, and it's sort of relevant to MIT...

Of course, I'm half-way across the world, and extremely unlikely to
attend, so I guess my opinion doesn't count for much...  ;-)
